Am I being bullied?

Bullying is when someone says or does things to make you feel bad on purpose. But it's not always easy to tell if someone's bullying you.

Bullying can include;

  • Being called names, teased, or making fun of your disability.
  • Ignoring you or leaving you out.
  • Whispering or turning away so you don’t know what’s said.
  • Hurting or threatening you.
  • Having your things stolen or broken.
  • Doing anything on purpose to make you feel bad.
  • Receiving abusive messages or having nasty comments made about you online (Cyberbullying)

Bullying can happen anywhere, at school/college when you're out or online.

Nobody has the right to bully you. If you're being bullied, there are ways to get support.
