Are you being bullied at school, home, work or online? Contact a Ireland helpline today.

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 8 helplines in Ireland provided by people who understand how lonely you feel. Consider contacting a helpline if:

  • You have repeatedly been the victim of threatening gestures or physically harassment
  • Others have purposely left you out of social groups at school, work or elsewhere.
  • Someone has made repeated negative comments about your appearance, culture, family, lifestyle or behaviour.
  • One or more people have repeatedly sworn at, called names, taunted or physically harassed you.
  • You have been threatened or physically harassed by others on a regular basis.
  • You have been threatened, belittled or shamed by someone on gaming or social media platforms.
  • You have been embarrassed by the spreading of rumours, whether made up or true.
  • You have been victimised by cyber-bullies who share secrets, rumours or negative comments about you.

No matter how blatant or discrete, bullying can make you feel different, excluded and alone. Your feelings are shared and understood. Remember, bullies aren’t the boss. What bullies say or do will never reflect your worth in life, who you really are and your potential to succeed.

The victims of bullying are always innocent, and bullying is never deserved. Although you may feel trapped, alone or incapable, there are people in Ireland who care and can provide you support. Helpline volunteers and counselors will offer you a listening ear and will work through difficult emotions with you.
