Five Thousand, Two Hundred and Thirty-Eight…

In an era marked by remarkable progress and advancements, the stark reality that 5,238 young lives between the ages of 5 and 24 were lost from 2009 to 2021 is an agonising testament to the pressing need for change. Each of these lives was a potential scientist, artist, entrepreneur, or visionary who could have contributed significantly to society. It is our collective responsibility to acknowledge this tragic toll and take decisive action to safeguard the well-being of our young Australians.

The loss of even one young life to suicide is a profound tragedy. Still, when confronted with the staggering number of 5,238 instances over twelve years, the magnitude of the crisis becomes abundantly clear. Our society's failure to provide adequate support and protection to these young souls is a collective failing that cannot be ignored. The fact that these lives were cut short due to bullying and mental health distress is an indictment of the institutions meant to nurture and protect them.

Every young person should be able to pursue their dreams without the haunting specter of bullying and mental health distress looming over them. Online and offline bullying inflicts deep emotional wounds that can scar individuals for life. The torment of relentless teasing, humiliation, and exclusion has dire consequences on young minds, eroding their self-esteem and shattering their sense of belonging. No young person should ever be made to feel so isolated and desperate that they believe ending their life is the only option left.

Mental health distress further compounds this crisis, magnifying the anguish experienced by these vulnerable young souls. The strains of modern life, academic pressures, and societal expectations can weigh heavily on young shoulders, often leading to a sense of hopelessness that becomes difficult to bear. As a society, we must acknowledge that mental health is not a weakness but a natural human experience that deserves compassion, understanding, and robust support systems.

As parents, educators, policymakers, and citizens, we must recognise our role in shaping the environment in which these young lives unfold. We must demand reforms in our education system that prioritise mental health education, early intervention, and the creation of safe spaces where bullying is not tolerated. Our digital landscape, which has the power to both connect and isolate, must be transformed into a platform that fosters empathy, respect, and positive communication.

Preventing young Australians from feeling their only escape is through self-inflicted harm necessitates a multi-faceted approach. Increased investment in mental health services, awareness campaigns, and community support networks can create a safety net that catches those in need before they fall into despair. Raising our collective voice against bullying, whether in schools, workplaces, or online spaces, sends a powerful message that cruelty will not be tolerated.

At the forefront of this battle against the harrowing statistics lies Bully Zero, an organisation that embraces an unwavering zero-tolerance stance for all forms of bullying, intimidation, and harassment. Founded in honour of Allem Halkic and the other 5,237 young lives tragically lost, Bully Zero stands as a beacon of hope and empowerment. With a firm commitment to saving lives, Bully Zero provides vital programs and workshops to every young person and parent across Australia. Through initiatives like their partnership with Kind is Cool, a retail partner driven by compassion and a commitment to change, we witness the true potential to create transformative shifts in our society. By channeling our collective efforts into campaigns such as this, we are not just advocating for change; we are taking concrete steps toward driving change that can save lives.

Sadly, the heart-wrenching loss of 5,238 young lives from 2009 to 2021 stands as an unassailable reminder of our duty to safeguard the well-being of young Australians. We cannot afford to be complacent in such a staggering crisis. We must create a society where no young person is driven to believe that ending their life is the only recourse. By fostering compassion, empathy, and resilience, we can build a future where every young Australian can thrive unhindered by the shadows of bullying and mental health distress.

      About Kind Is Cool

      I’M AMBER. When I started Kind is Cool, I just wanted to bring a little bit of kindness into a world that suddenly felt dark to me. 

      I’d been bullied by someone of authority that I worked with and it had really shaken me. I’d experienced first hand the affect bullying in the workplace as an adult can have.

      The thought that I bringing up my two young boys in a world where things like that can happen, made me really sad.

      I was determined to do something to bring more kindness into the world. I saw clothing as a blank canvas that could be used for good, to be used to spread kindness and inspire others to be kind!

      And now, one t-shirt at a time this is happening.

      Kind is Cool has grown into a global brand, worn by celebrities and change makers all over the world. We are a proud partner with Bully Zero and co-founders of National Be Kind Day.
