You may not be a victim of bullying, but you may be a witness. As such you can be an important support for a friend who is a victim of bullying online. 

Acting to support a victim can be understandably difficult and anxious for you.  Try and think about what it would be like to be a victim of abuse. What would the impact be on you if you were subject to that type of bullying?  And think about what help you would like from a friend if you were at risk? Sometimes sending a message of support or a “like” to the victim’s words on that violence may be of great help to them..

Also try talking to an adult. To your parents. Even with your teachers. Deciding to help and to try and stop bullies is a great  sign of maturity and courage.
