Guiding's Guide to saying No! to Bullying

Being bullied is hurtful and frightening, and it happens to many of us at one time or another. It can make you feel lonely and isolated, and can really eat away at your confidence. Girls tend to be bullied by other girls in ways that can be more emotional and less obvious than physical bullying. It can be difficult to know who to talk to or where to go for help.

This guide - supported by Changing the World partners Kidscape and the Mental Health Foundation - offers advice on where to find help, who you can trust and how to deal with bullies.
