The family of Joe Pickhaver, who died when he was struck by a train in Whitstable, have launched a fundraising appeal in his memory.
Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School pupil Joe Pickhaver died after being hit close to a footbridge on Saturday night at around 9pm.
His family have now started a Just Giving page "In memory of Joe Pickhaver", in an effort to raise money for the Young Minds Trust.
A message on the page states: "After a long struggle with mental illness we lost our dear son Joe on 10th December 2016 aged 16, when he took his own life. His parents Chris and Caroline, and sisters Annie and Dervla would like to raise £16,000 - a thousand pounds for every year of his life, to help others."
The campaign has already raised more than £4,000.
