If YOU are being Bullied:
Tell your parents! If you don't tell them, they can't help.
If you can't tell your parents, tell another trusted adult - a family member, a teacher, a counselor - but tell someone!
Telling is not snitching - it's the right thing to do.
If you think you are in crisis, if this is an emergency, or you need immediate assistance, call 911 or contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) immediately.
STOMP Out Bullying™ live chat is there to help youth ages 13-24 with issues of being bullied, cyberbullied and for those who may be at-risk for suicide.
It's not your fault! No one deserves to be bullied!
Look at the kid bullying you and tell him or her to stop in a calm, clear voice
If speaking up seems too hard or not safe, walk away and stay away.
Don’t fight back. Find an adult to stop the bullying on the spot.
Stay away from places where bullying happens.
Stay near adults and other kids. Most bullying happens when adults aren’t around.
Keep a notebook of bullying incidents. Note the date, time, place and witnesses.
File a report following your school's procedures. Be sure to keep a copy of the report for your records.
Follow up with the principal to see what actions are being taken to resolve the bullying you reported.
If your principal does not act on your report have your parents contact the School Board Superintendent and ask for their help.
Let your parents know of other kids in your school who are being bullied.
