Location: Castlederg, County Tyrone
Campaign: To help stop cyberbullying

My team and I are concerned about the number of young people who experience cyberbullying, when no-one should have to suffer this type of abuse.

It can have a serious impact on a young person’s mental health, potentially triggering conditions like depression and anxiety.

With Fixers and the rest of my group, I want to raise awareness of the issue and show bullies the possible impact of their behaviour.

I hope our campaign will convince others that cyberbullying is not a joke. It’s hurtful and can be extremely damaging.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:

 

Conor McNulty
