Bullying

 

Bullying can happen anywhere and the aim is to hurt you. This is just some of the ways that someone could be bullied:

·         name calling including racist and homophobic bullying

·         kicking or hitting

·         taking your things

·         spreading rumours

·         excluding you from things

·         cyberbullying

Racial, sexual, homophobic and transphobic bullying are against the law.

Beat bullying

It can be even more difficult to deal with being bullied online, by mobile phone or by messages on social media sites because you can't escape from it.

You may not feel comfortable telling anyone what is going on, because you might be called a grass, or maybe you just feel embarrassed that you are being bullied; but you are not alone. You must ask for help.

Ask for help
Try and talk about what is happening with parents or carers, an older brother or sister or perhaps another adult that you trust. 

TELL a TEACHER!

Support on St Helena:

Ask the school nurse for advice on who can help you.

The school nurse offers a drop-in service for young people to come and chat to about any social, emotional and physical health and wellbeing issues.

The mental health team offer counselling for young people who feel their emotional wellbeing is suffering, whatever the reason may be.

You can go to your nurse / Doctor for help at any age. Anything you talk about is confidential and will be kept between you and your nurse / doctor unless you or someone else is at risk.
