Jack Wilkinson, a boy from Australia, was only seven years old when he left a suicide note for his teacher after trying his best to cope with bullying at school.

The boy’s mother, Kristy Sturgess, revealed that her son was diagnosed with an anxiety disorder when he was younger, so bullies at school would see him as an easy target because of the way he would react to the mistreatments.

Weeks before leaving a note on his Year 2 teacher’s desk that read, “God, please take me,” Jack was beaten for 10 minutes in the playground. A classmate started messing with him, and things got physical.

THE INCIDENT

When adults noticed the incident, the damage was already done. The boy received several punches, kicks, and was stabbed with a plastic fork. Kristy saw that something was not okay as soon as she picked him up in school that day.

Jack was limping and holding his shoulder in tears. When she checked his body, she saw bruises on his legs and a fork mark in his shoulder. After the incident, the boy changed. He wrote on his pillow, “I don’t want to be alive,” days before leaving the suicide note for his teacher.

Thankfully, Kristy found a wonderful way to support her son. Since the lady knew he had always loved to draw, and she owns a clothing company, she asked him if he wanted to do “more” with his drawings.

THE OUTCOME

The pair then decided to turn some of the boy’s favorite creations into t-shirts and even sell them online. The money they got from those shirts went to the Kid’s Helpline. Kristy pointed out that several children go through the same, and they might not have the support Jack had, so raising money for that organization was the right thing to do for them.

“What Kid's Helpline offer, the support they offer, there are some kids who don't have that. It's about letting people know mental health isn't a taboo thing to talk about. It's okay not to be okay, and there are people you can speak to confidentially,” shared Kristy.

SEVEN BRIDGES’ CASE

On a similar note, a 10-year-old boy named Seven Bridges committed suicide after repeated bullying over colostomy bag. After trying his best to endure the mistreatment, the boy hanged himself in the family’s home.

Bridges underwent 26 surgeries after he was born with a medical defect. He was required to wear a colostomy bag which apparently would smell.

The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 1-800-273-8255. Other international suicide helplines can be found at befrienders.org.
