How can we tackle cyberbullying?


Cyberbullying can occur in many ways including:
•    abusive texts and emails
•    hurtful messages, images or videos
•    imitating others online
•    excluding others online
•    humiliating others online
•    nasty online gossip and chat

•    call Triple Zero (000) if you are in immediate danger


•    contact your local police if: 
      •    there are threats to your safety
      •    there are threats to visit you, your
            friends or family members. 

  • talk to someone you trust straight away—like a parent, sibling, uncle/aunt, teacher or friend, or contact Kids Helpline
  • don’t retaliate or respond—they might use it against you
  • block the bully and change your privacy settings 
  • report the abuse to the service and get others to as well
  • collect the evidence—keep mobile phone messages, take screenshots and print emails or social networking conversations 
  • do something you enjoy—catch-up with friends, listen to good music, watch a good show or chat online to people you can trust
  • remember you didn’t ask for this—nobody deserves to be bullied and you will get through this
  • If this is happening to you or your friend, talking about it helps. There are a few options, so choose the one right for you:
