After suffering depression and being the victim of on-line bullying Mel is now helping teenagers, particularly those dealing with bullying and depression.
Today Mel is flying to her home town of Adelaide to help launch a children’s book.
A Ferret Named Phil is by local Adelaide author William Reimer about overcoming a bully without resorting to violence.
Young people need to be continually educated on what bullying is and the long lasting affects that it can have, it’s so important that parents and teachers make this a priority”, says Mel
“William’s book is going to resonate with a lot of children and it’s going to start a lot of conversations between children and adults, I love the book and I encourage parents to read it with their children.”
William is also the son of FIVEaa announcer Andrew Reimer.
