MODEL, 20, killed herself after she was sexually groomed at just 13-years-old.
Beautiful Caitlin O’ Reilly, 20, took her own life in a Premier Inn in Manchester city centre following a night out with friends in August last year. The tragic model’s mental health had been in decline for many months after she was sexually groomed by an older man when she was 13, her heartbroken family revealed.
Now, her family is speaking out about Caitlin’s tragic death in the hopes of helping other youngsters struggling with their mental health.
The family has created a T-shirt collection in aid of the Caitlin O’ Reilly Fund, bearing slogans like ‘Always Worthy’ and ‘Always Good Enough’, which has been launched by local youth charity Ruff and Ruby. The fund offers young people mental health support packages and early intervention.
Take That pop star Robbie Williams, who is friends with the girl’s father, took to Twitter after Caitlin’s death to support his grieving pal:
‘My friend Pete wants to try to help use this tragic event to raise awareness of the amount of young people suffering with mental health issues.
‘I am honoured to support him in memory of Caitlin.”
