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:
Police Service of Northern Ireland
Sergeant Joni Beatty supports our Fix. She agreed to be interviewed to appear in our broadcast piece.
Castlederg Youth Forum
Margaret Humphrey is the youth group coordinator and supported our project by putting us in touch with Fixers and helping to arrange meetings.
Shak & Natasha
Me and my friends want young people to know that calories aren't the enemy!
Mary-Anne White and Lucy Wills
Fixers is a project of the Public Service Broadcasting Trust, funded by the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund, and featured on ITV.
