#AntiBullyingWeek


This week  marks anti bullying week, so I thought that it is important that I take the time to blog about it. Over 25,700 children and young people spoke to Childline last year regarding bullying. (NSPCC) Already this number is absolutely shocking but there are also so many children and young people who don't speak. Unfortunately, bullying is no longer something that just happens in a playground, but a rising amount of bullying now happens behind screens. Suicide is the third leading cause of death in young people, with victims of bullying being 9 times more likely to take their own lives. The link between suicide and bullying is scary, if only we could tackle bullying and save these lives. So I want to take the time today to share my bullying story with you.
