If you had the power to stamp out bullying and protect our kid’s mental health, would you do it?

Of course, you would.

At 16, Abby McDonald knows we all have the power to stop the bullying, and she’s out there doing it. Badly bullied at school and unable to find help there, Abby eventually gave up on life. She began to self-harm and eventually attempted suicide many times.

Now Abby shares her story with educators and students, so they get the message she wants them to hear.

“I want to spread awareness that even the smallest act of kindness can change someone’s path. I think everyone needs to hear my message of hope and kindness, because no matter what your age, mental health will always be a major problem, and should no longer be taboo. The next generation needs to help.

See Abby sharing some thoughts about mental health

She speaks to kids in their own terms and connects with them in a way an adult can’t. She’s been there, done that when it comes to bullying and she’s a shining example of survival.

She gives kids hope.

1 in 6 Australian school students aged 7 to 17 say they’ve been bullied at least once a week.

The thing is, young people don’t talk about bullying and abuse. They lock it away inside an pretend they’re coping.

They make a joke of it when someone mentions it because it’s not socially acceptable to talk about how they feel.

Even worse, kids that see what’s happening feel they can’t do anything about it in the case they become victims too.

Then there’s the inescapable impact of cyber-bullying…

That’s why you need Abby!
