Bullying

Question: What is bullying?

Answer: Making someone else feel scared, worthless, lonely, guilty or upset – regardless of whether they’ve done anything to provoke it. It usually takes place over and over again.

Fact: It can happen on the computer (cyberbullying), at home, on your mobile, in school, at uni and even in the workplace.
