Pushed to the brink by bullies, a 10-year-old Lilly-Jo Caldcott spent her 10th birthday in the hospital bed after attempting to kill herself.

Lilly-Jo Caldcott tried committing suicide by overdosing pill she found at her home after suffering weight jibes and physical bullies at Witton Middle School in Worcestershire.

Just like any other 10-year-old girl, Lilly-Jo loved playing and meeting new friends, spending time with her family, and exploring nature.

However, Lilly-Jo suddenly began to withdraw herself from social activities and refusing to eat. Her mom knew something wasn’t right and didn’t imagine the nightmare that’d befall.

After a couple of weeks of starting school in Worcestershire, Lily-Jo began to refuse to go to school.

According to the mother, Jess Brown, Lilly-Jo admitted to her that she was having issues with another girl in school.

The bullying, both psychological and physical, got worse, and Lilly-Jo became more withdrawn.

Getting her to school was a battle as Lilly-Jo didn’t want to go to school, she was distressed, she wasn’t eating, and was making herself sick.

Her mother told Worcestershire News that she had been to the school, for 12 weeks, to try and resolve the issues, but her daughter’s condition never changed.

The mother wrote a letter addressing the school principal, describing the bullies her daughter said she was experiencing.
