Bullying is when someone else uses their power to hurt or upset you again and again. It could involve nasty messages, being left out of a group or physical aggression.

If you’re being bullied you might be feeling scared, worried, sad or angry.

It can feel like no one understands. The truth is that lots of people have experienced bullying and you are not alone.

Here’s a video about an experience of bullying:

  3. Take screenshots
