#STOP CYBERBULLYING

Welcome to your digital lives of YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat, TikTok.

A world where you can research topics of interest, listen to music, chat with friends and on-line gaming.
A world of messaging apps that allows you to connect.
A world in which you spend on average 14.4hours/week.

At least 4 out of every 10 of us have had at least one negative online experience and over 50% of young adults aged 14 – 17 have experienced this.

Perhaps we have been ghosted or excluded. Maybe even experienced on-line or cyberbullying.

Bullying and peer victimisation negatively impacts our sense of well-being and our mental health and contributes to feeling isolated, anxious and depressed.

The good news is that more young people are standing up and saying #STOP to negative on-line and bullying behaviour.

Whether you are a bystander or someone who has experienced on-line bullying you can join the movement to put a #STOP to this behaviour.

HERE’S WHAT WE CAN DO TO STOP CYBERBULLYING

Being a good on-line citizen

Good on-line citizens are Upstanders rather than a bystander.

We stand up for our friends and call out poor negative on-line behaviour when we see it.

We can use #Stop to show our support for our friends.

We can use #Stop when we see negative on-line behaviour.

Join us in being good on-line citizens.

Here’s what we can do!

If you are experiencing bullying or something is happening on-line you aren’t comfortable with, there are things you can do.

  • Use the #Stop emoji to let the person know to stop and to let your friends know so they can support you.
  • Unfriend or block the person who is bullying or harassing you.
  • Talk to a trusted friend or family member.
  • Spend less time on-line. Enjoy life off-line.
  • Report it to the social media company.
  • Report it to someone else like the eSafety Commission

Remember, you are not alone in standing up to bullying. Many young people are standing up and saying #Stop to negative on-line behaviour.

SUPPORT OTHERS WITHOUT ABUSE

We want to support our friends and people we know who are being bullied.  You can use # as a way to show your support.

If you see something online that doesn’t sit right with you, comment #. Your bravery can inspire others to assess their own behaviour online.

If you see #, by liking this, the person experiencing the abuse can feel they are not alone and have support.

Let’s support each other by supporting the cause. 

If you want to put a stop cyberbullying and abuse online, draw a stop sign on your hand, tag @stopbullyingwa and spread the word. 

# to end cyberbullying.
