Bullying can happen to anyone at any age. Being bullied at school, home or online might involve someone pushing you, hitting you, teasing you, talking about you or calling you names. Nobody has the right to hurt you or make you feel bad. If you are being bullied you don’t have to deal with it alone. We are here to help you.
If you are being bullied, it can sometimes feel like nothing can make it stop, especially if it has been happening for a long time. Bullying can leave you feeling anxious, depressed, lonely, worthless and scared – but it doesn’t have to be like this. You can get help through Childline by calling a counsellor free on 0800 1111
