Where Does Bullying Happen?

Bullying can happen anywhere. It can occur in your neighborhood, while going to school, at school, and while on-line.

What is Cyberbullying?

Using technology—internet, email, cell phones, social media, pictures— to hurt or harm someone else.


  • Sending mean text messages
  • Posting statements online that are unkind or not true
  • Sending or posting pictures that are not yours to share
  • Making negative comments online about someone
  • Agreeing with someone who posts something hurtful

Bullying is never okay, cool, or acceptable.

No one EVER deserves to be bullied.
