How can I help myself?
If you are being bullied, or are worried that someone you care about is being bullied, then do not feel alone as there is support available. The most important thing to do if you are being bullied is to tell someone. See the Learn Together Cambridgeshire page on anti-bullying, our page for children and young people, support for families, and support for schools. Youthoria, a website for young people in Cambridgeshire also has a vast amount of information on bullying (Youthoria).
For additional support see Radio 1 website and for support on cyber bullying, and sexting see Kidscape and the NSPCC
If you are a bully, you can change. Visit the Youthoria website or NHS Choices for advice.
