Bullying wrecks lives and affects people in all kinds of ways.

Bullying can be anything from name calling, being intimidated, left out or cyber bullying to more serious stuff such as being forced into doing something you don't want to or acts of physical violence. Bullying can even happen in the workplace.


Not all bullying is a crime. However it is still distressing and needs to be dealt with. It is always advisable to speak with a parent/carer, teacher or other trusted adult or friend. Bullying in the workplace is prohibited by various laws. For bullying that is criminal, the police should be informed.
