Talk, Report, Support [CyberSmart]

"Cyberbullying is using technology to deliberately and repeatedly bully someone. By reporting it, talking about it and supporting each other we can stop it."

What is Cyberbullying?

Cyber-bullying is the use of electronic communication to bully a person, typically by sending messages of an intimidating or threatening nature.

When someone is getting cyberbullied it can feel like a punch in the face just like when someone is getting face to face bullied.

This can lead to depression and it can make people want to cut or kill themselves and its because of others around us.
