The twin brother of a troubled Sidcup man who tragically took his own life in 2014 has said there is still "not enough" being done to tackle mental health.

In August of 2013, News Shopper reported that a man had climbed on the roof of Sidcup police station, prompting a stand-off with emergency services which lasted more than three hours.

After dealing with a police negotiator, Paul Robinson agreed to come down and was sectioned under the Mental Health Act.

Paul's twin brother Jade told News Shopper that Paul decided to take his own life one year later.

However, Jade believes those who read that earlier article did not have the opportunity to fully understand his brother and the kind of good-natured character he was, aside from having mental health issues.

"When I saw that story I just thought 'you don’t know the truth'.

"He should have spoke to someone. He should have had a voice.

"People don’t understand mental health conditions.

"We can see someone with a broken leg, but you can’t see someone with bad mental health.

"For example, I remember one time we were in his car and a woman with a baby had driven out in front of us but the road was really slippery because of the fallen leaves so he couldn't stop.

"In that split second he decided to drive us through a nearby wall instead of potentially hurting both of them. He was a gentleman that way," he said.

He explained a number of unfortunate incidents which occurred when they were small children had led to both men suffering from unstable personality disorders, a condition which often manifests itself in the form of mood wings and can force impulsive decisions on the sufferer.

Because of this, Jade told of how Paul had been arrested and sectioned on a number of occasions. However, he feels not enough was done to help his struggling brother overcome his issues.

"All they do is give you loads of medications to sedate you.

"One time, he was released only one week after he was sectioned.

"There should be more out there about mental health," he said.

Jade also touched on his experiences dealing with his disorder, explaining a brief stint in prison opened his eyes to the lack of awareness surrounding mental health stigma, prompting him to seek proper help once out.

"If only you could see behind the walls of a prison for people with mental health. They didn’t help me," he said.

Since leaving prison, Jade has began to pursue further help for his mental health issues, something which he claims was promised to him while inside but never received.
