Bullying

What is bullying?

Bullying can come in many forms. It can be physical, emotional, or sexual, and can affect different people in different ways. Some people may be bullied by being called names, physically hit, or made to do things they don’t want to do. It may come from people who you wouldn’t expect, such as friends or family.  No person deserves to be bullied and no matter what kind of bullying a person is experiencing, they should seek help.

 

Where can I get help?

Help may come from many places in a person’s life: family, friends, teachers, or other members of the community.  Everyone needs someone they can trust to talk about issues that are bothering them. Talking to others about how bullying is making you feel is the first step to address the issue and help stop the bullying. There are also organisations that can help you out if you need more help or if you would feel more comfortable talking to a stranger.
