Is bullying making you feel trapped and afraid? Contact a Japan crisis line for support.

If you’re struggling with someone who uses power, position, strength or popularity to degrade and belittle you, you’re a victim of bullying. If you’re being bullied at home, school, work, or online, you’re not alone. There are 3 helplines in Japan provided by people who understand how lonely you feel. Consider contacting a helpline if:

  • You have been embarrassed by the spreading of rumours, whether made up or true.
  • A popular or forceful person has told others not to be friends with you.
  • Your possessions have purposely been damaged or taken by others on a regular basis.
  • Others have frequently shamed, taunted or threatened you on social media.
  • You have repeatedly been the victim of threatening gestures or physically harassment
  • One or more people has repeatedly called you names and teased or humiliated you.
  • Have you been publicly laughed at, taunted or purposely left out of groups and activities
  • You have been excluded from activities and social groups in a hurtful or humiliating way.

There are countless ways in which bullies can victimise others. Some are public and overt, while others are private and covert. Although you might feel rejected, self-conscious and afraid, you are not alone. Bullying is never a true reflection of who you are, how you look, or your life’s potential.

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 Japan 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.
