Dealing with bullying
The most important thing to remember is no one has the right to bully you. You don’t have to deal with it alone – there are many people and organisations who can help you.
If you are bullying somebody and want help there’s support for you too.
Where can I get help?
First of all, the best thing you can do is tell an adult you trust, such as a parent, carer or someone in school. This may seem difficult, but it can make a real difference. Secondly, please visit the links below – or call Childline for immediate help and support: their free phone number is 0800 1111.
We recommend you take care if you share on messageboards, whether that’s for mental health or anything else. Online messageboards should tell you how they make sure your information is kept safe and confidential, and how they make sure users respect each other and content is appropriate. A really good example of a messageboard that does this well is from Childline.
