Have you suffered at the hands of bullies? Reach out to a Australia helpline today.

If you’ve been bullied or belittled at home, school, work or online, you don’t have to suffer alone. There are 11 helplines in Australia for people who’ve been victims of bullying. Bullying can be physical or psychological, direct or indirect, but whatever form it takes, it always hurts. Bullying can look like:

  • You have been socially isolated and made to feel different, ashamed and alone.
  • You have been the victim of pranks, rumours, naming and shaming online.
  • You have been threatened, belittled or shamed by someone on gaming or social media platforms.
  • Someone has made repeated negative comments about your appearance, culture, family, lifestyle or behaviour.
  • Others have frequently shamed, taunted or threatened you on social media.
  • Someone has shared private, negative, false or harmful pictures, content or rumours about you.
  • One or more people has repeatedly called you names and teased or humiliated you.
  • One or more people have repeatedly sworn at, called names, taunted or physically harassed you.

These are all ways in which bullies might try to boost their status at your expense, making you feel shamed, isolated and small. Yet, bullying in no way reflects who you truly are, what you’re capable of achieving, how you actually look, or how much you are valued by others.

The victims of bullying come from all walks of life, from every school, playground, workplace and online platform. You may be sceptical about whether helpline support in Australia will work for you, especially if you have been treated badly in the past. The good news is that helpline staff are well-trained to help people with experiences like yours.
