Need Help or Support?
Young people who are bullied are more likely to be depressed, anxious, struggle with school work and experience mental health issues. If you are concerned about someone, then it is important to offer support and seek expert help for them – and yourself if you are being bullied.
Experts say the risks are high when it comes to bullying. Girls who have been bullied are four times more likely to have suicidal tendencies than girls who haven’t been bullied, while boys that are bullied are two-anda-half times more likely to think about suicide.
