Paul Bickle was an 18 year old kid who lived at home with his mother Donna, and who suffered from OCD and was clinically depressed.
Tragically Paul killed himself after a row with his mother, jumping from a bridge after seeing her turn off the internet connection in their house and cut him off from his playstation games.
Donna is understandably devastated and is warning all parents not to ignore signs of their child’s depression, claiming: ‘Don’t dismiss your children’s mood swings as teenage tantrums.
‘Don’t dismiss OCD as something quirky – it has such a huge impact.’
Paul had suffered from OCD since he was a 16 year old and saw it get progressively worse until he finally snapped and tragically committed suicide.
