SPECIFIC ‘LIFE’ PROBLEMS

BULLYING

Bullying happens in all different kinds of places and situations.  It could be that you are being bullied or are bullying another person.  Either way, your emotional health may be poor due to the situation.  You may be lacking sleep, unable to eat, fear going out, skipping school, college or work, or even self-harming or feeling suicidal because of the situation. Getting help is vital.

In serious cases of bullying call the POLICE on 999 or 101.

If you are living at home it could help to try and speak to your relatives about what is happening so they can support you in making a decision about why it is happening and discuss how they can help you to tackle the problem. If you are in education one of the most important steps you may choose to take is to report what is happening to a teacher, school nurse, advisor or counsellor. Once highlighted your school or college ARE RESPONSIBLE for helping you.
