If you are being bullied

Bullying can happen to anyone at any age. If someone is bullying you - at school, home or online - they might push you, hit you, tease you, talk about you or call 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.

Signs you are being bullied

Bullying can mean many different things and can come in several forms. It may include someone

  • calling you names
  • putting you down or humiliating you
  • teasing you
  • pushing, hitting, kicking or physically hurting you
  • taking your money or damaging your possessions
  • spreading rumours about you
  • ignoring you or leaving you out of activities
  • threatening or intimidating you

How to get help

If you think you are being bullied, you need to tell someone that you can trust - such as  a parent, friend, teacher or relative. The best way to protect yourself from being bullied is to tell someone so that you can get some help.
