'It's OK not to be OK': Mum's tragic post before clifftop lookout tragedy

A mother made an online mental health plea months before she and her daughter were found dead at the bottom of a cliff in the NSW Illawarra region.

Tanja Ludwig, 33, and her two-year-old daughter died on Tuesday at Mount Keira near Wollongong.

Ms Ludwig was remembered by neighbour Athena Kinnis who told News Corp she was a “nice lady”.

In December, about a week out from Christmas, the 33-year-old posted to Facebook a message about mental health.

“It’s OK not to be OK,” she wrote in a Facebook post sharing an image with a list of numbers of mental health support hotlines urging people to share it.

“We all need support sometimes.”

The image also said: “It’s a really tough time of year for people.

“A simple copy and paste might save someone’s life. I did it, will you?”

One of her profile pictures also featured a filter for PANDA Week.

The organisation supports men and women suffering from depression and anxiety during and after pregnancy.

Police are yet to state if any charges will be laid over her death.

They are yet to receive a report from the coroner.
