Aaron Main was the most quiet, kind and caring boy you could ever meet.

He was a pupil at Ysgol Harri Tudur and he had aspirations to be a welder like his brother Ross.

Aaron was found hanged at his home recently. His death has left the community devastated and asking how a beautiful teenager with no diagnosis of depression or mental health issue, who “could get along with anyone and really brighten their day”, could be so overwhelmed with his silent struggle.

Beloved little brother to Ross (30), Lauren (28) and Ben (25), Aaron, who turned 15 in January, took pleasure in many things: playing Xbox with friends via headset, day trips to the city, wearing nice clothes and going on holiday to Disneyland Paris.

On Saturday, April 13, the day Aaron died, his mother Nicky had given him a loving hug before she went to work - and Aaron headed to the gym where his charm, humour and empathy impressed a woman who got chatting to him. They shared a joke and he mentioned looking forward to the summer - just hours before his death.

The woman, who wrote to Nicky after hearing the sad news, had noticed what a “lovely and kind hearted” boy Aaron was.

Aaron was seeing a counsellor at school, but Nicky had heard him say worrying things about not wanting to be around anymore and not wishing to be a burden to anyone. She would always reassure him of how much he was loved by her and his family. She even suggested he see a GP. But he would say, “you can make an appointment but I’m not going.”

Nicky believes that Aaron masked his troubles very well. She is concerned that others with similar struggles may be “bottling things up” and not talking about their mental health struggles, perhaps because of embarrassment. She urges anyone who knows someone who could be struggling like this to take everything they say seriously and try to get them some help. “Rather than saying everything will be okay, talk about it, because sometimes they won’t talk about it by themselves,” she advises.

A Gofundme page has been set up by family friend Lesley Ryan, who wrote: “I would like to help to give Aaron the memorial he deserves, to honour Aaron’s memory and say any last goodbyes.” At time of writing, the fundraiser has raised over £4,000.
