WHAT CAN I DO?

Besides posting with the hashtag on November 15th, remember that everyone is different, and everyone deserves to be treated with respect! You never know who is watching how you manage stress or conflict, and is using your actions as their example. Start by having a conversation with someone who has a different background, lifestyle, culture, or worldview than yourself, and keep an open mind to understanding a different perspective.

WHAT IF I SEE SOMEONE BEING BULLIED?

If you're an adult, do something immediately! It's important to stay calm, be respectful, and stay safe, but don't be a bystander. If you're not an adult, find one quickly to help de-escalate the situation. And if you witness someone being violent or you're afraid for your or someone else's safety, report it immediately or call 911.

I'M BEING BULLIED. IS THERE SOMEONE I CAN TALK TO?

YES! It's important to remember YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Tell your parents, a teacher, or someone you trust right away. If you're being bullied online, don't respond, and report it immediately. If you're not sure, here's 9 tips for dealing with a cyber bully.

If you're feeling hopeless, helpless, or thinking about suicide, and you don't know who you can trust, please call 1-800-273-TALK (8255). Someone will answer your call 24-hours a day and they would love to talk to you.

AM I A BULLY?
