According to the deceased sister, Autumn Gale, Red who claimed he was carrying “the weight of the world on his shoulders”, had suffered with mental health issues including depression and anxiety.
He told my mum that he wouldn’t make it through the lockdown,” Autumn said.
He had so many friends and family who cared about him but when the rules started he lost that huge support system.
We tried really hard to take the pain away from him but he struggled.
My brother was funny, loyal and thoughtful, he went above and beyond for so many people, especially people who were struggling with their own mental health.
So many of his friends have said that he pulled them out of a deep dark place a number of times and he was a caring dad to his daughter.
He had been struggling with his mental health for a couple of years and was let down so many times.
His friends and family, we were all fighting for him but he couldn’t do it anymore and gave up the fight.
In a tribute to her son, Red’s mum Polly Gale said;
You had a soft, warm and loving heart.
A heart that would fiercely protect the vulnerable, because you understood how it felt.
You lived with a wounded heart for far too long and I wished everyday that the universe would protect you to heal that beautiful heart of yours.
He was let down, we reached out to services, GPs, hotlines and everything but as soon as the pandemic started it felt like he was being passed around and that they closed the doors on him”, Autumn said.
Everything was about the virus. I took him to the GP myself around two weeks before the lockdown but they said because of his age that the best thing to do was to take him to the drop-in centre which was around 30 miles away
