It’s Anti-Bullying Week on betty – here’s what’s coming up…

It’s Anti-Bullying Week from the 14th to the 18th November, and that’s not something we were about to ignore.

Bullying is something that most people will experience at some point during their lives, whether that’s because they’re being bullied, one of their friends is being bullied, or even because they’re being a bully themselves. It’s a huge issue that can really impact on your life, and it’s important that we talk about it.

This week on our YouTube channel will be an Anti-Bullying Week special, with five new videos tackling the many different emotional and practical aspects of bullying. On Monday, Lily and betty writer Jazmin talk about the different ways bullying can affect you. On Tuesday, author Alexia Casale talks about how a simple change in how she looked at her bullying helped her cope with it. On Wednesday, Sophie talks about how a change in her friendship group resulted in her standing up for herself, and what happened after that. On Thursday, Rebecca talks to Amy about her experience of actually being a bully. And on Friday, Lily talks to Childline counsellor about what you can do if you’re being bullied.

If you’re being bullied, just remember that it’s not your fault and you don’t deserve to be treated that way by anybody. Talking to an adult like a parent or teacher can help, but if that’s too scary you can always talk to Childline.

We hope you find this week useful and interesting. Want to join in the conversation? Find us on YouTubeTwitter, Instagram and Facebook @bettycollective.
