Doctor Alex George Posts Touching Tribute To Late Brother A Year After His Death

Doctor Alex George has posted an emotional tribute to his younger brother on Instagram, one year after his tragic death.

Llyr George, who was 19, was due to start medical school - but tragically took his own life weeks before.

The picture includes Alex, Llyr and their parents with a heartfelt caption that reads: "I can't believe it's been a year. Some days I really can't accept or understand that you are not here.

"We miss you so much Llyr. You give me so much strength, even when times are tough and it would be easy to give up."

"Mum, Dad and Elliot are doing ok, they miss you so much too. I would do anything to go out for a spin in the car with you again. Love you x"


The post gained floods of likes, love and support with one user writing: "My heart breaks for you all. But you are using the tragedy and loss to shine a light on such important issues and of that your family should be so proud. Xx"

Another wrote: "Thank you for doing so much work around mental health. Heart breaking for you and your family. Too many young lives lost to this and not enough support given."

Former Love Island star George was appointed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson as the Youth Mental Health Ambassador earlier this year, during Children's Mental Health Week.

Along with this, he is part of the new Mental Health in Education Action Group which will look at how young people are supported with their wellbeing as they return to school and university after an increasingly difficult year.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: "Children and young people have heroically adapted to save lives and protect our NHS. This has understandably had a huge impact on their mental health.

"I'm delighted that Dr. Alex George will be working with us as we do everything in our power to improve people's mental wellbeing."

George said, "The last year has been unimaginably difficult for us, but particularly for young people who have sacrificed so much.

"Right now young people need a voice in government, and I hope that through this role I can advocate for meaningful change in this area."

Doctor Alex remains independent from the government and the position within the Department for Education is an unpaid role. He also uses his large social media platforms to raise awareness.
