Alagiah told BBC Radio 5 Live of his recent diagnosis: “I saw some of the headlines actually about it and thought: 'Oh my God, are they talking about me?’ I thought it was time to start ordering the white lilies.

Dr Alex's brother, Llŷr, died aged 19 in July following a battle with mental health.

"I was at a restaurant with some friends when I found out. I had a phone call from my dad and I could tell something bad had happened.

"When he said it was Llŷr, the world came down on my shoulders.

"I felt tremendous guilt. I'm the older brother, I'm the doctor, I was supposed to look after him and take care of him. It was the worst thing."

Dr Alex went on to admit that he sat in silence with his brother Elliott for five hours as they drove home to Wales before breaking down and venting their emotions at each other.

"I went to dark parts of my mind during that journey home; I just could not believe it had happened," Dr Alex said.

"He was such a kind little boy and in a lot of ways was a little mini me.

"We had the same passions. He loved medicine, he loved science, he was a bit geeky like I am.

"As a family we were so proud of him and that's why it was such a shock to all of us."

Dr Alex then went on to discuss the importance of recognising mental health as an illness that can affect anybody.

"Mental health can affect anyone and I think that's something I think is so important that we all need to realise.

"Mental health and physical health are akin, it is an illness and that's why it's so important that we treat it that way."

Lorraine then went on to mention Dr Alex's continued push to talk about mental health and stressed the importance of more resources being available to help those in need.

Dr Alex said: "It's so important. It is about raising awareness, but also about making change. It's about improving funding in the NHS for mental health, it's about improving education at schools around mental health.

"Now more than ever we need to look after ourselves, we need to be kind, we need to take time and spend time with your loved ones - it's so important."

Dr Alex took a two week break from social media after Llŷr's passing to dedicate time to his family and his own wellbeing, something he has admitted was hugely beneficial and necessary.
