Help for children and young adults
If you are unhappy with the way you are being treated by someone at school or on-line you should talk to a trusted adult and explain to them how you feel about what has being happening to you.
Sometimes young people can fear that telling someone will make the bullying worse but in fact if you do not tell someone bullying always gets worse.
