Bullying is an issue which affects people from all walks of life and can happen at any point. Research confirms the long-lasting and damaging outcomes for the individual being bullied including prolonged absenteeism from school and negative consequences on physical and mental health even at the age of 50.
Bullying isn’t confined to the school gates and its victims aren’t limited to young people. It also exists at home and in our wider communities; in boardrooms, and lunchrooms, on high streets, stadiums and pubs. And of course, bullying exists online:
The result can be a constant, and unrelenting attack. We all have a role to play in tackling and preventing bullying.
Anti bullying week is a great way to get involved, take a stand against bullying and raise awareness in your school, college or organisation.
Bullying doesn’t just affect children but adults too.
