Campaign: To encourage young people who are being bullied to speak out

I know what it’s like to be bullied and the devastating impact it can have on a young person’s mental health.

I was physically attacked and bullies set up anonymous social media accounts to threaten me with further violence.

For three months, I didn’t tell anyone what was happening. Like me, too many other people stay quiet.

I now want to raise awareness of the different forms of bullying and encourage those affected to ask for help.

I want young people to understand when they’re being bullied so they can speak to someone who can make it stop.

It’s good to know there’s light at the end of the tunnel.
