Stand Up To Bullying Day

Today is Stand Up To Bullying Day and Anti Bullying Pro is asking the nation to raise public awareness about the long-term effect of bullying and drive forward understanding about our collective role in tackling it. 

More than one in five young people say they’ve recently been bullied – and many adults also report bullying in the workplace, at home and online. 

Research has shown that bullying can have a detrimental impact to someone’s mental and physical health – even at the age of 50.

We’re funding Dr Jean-Baptiste Pingault, who’s looking into the relationship between mental health and bullying which could lead to more targeted and effective support for young people

Get involved with Stand Up To Bullying Day

Show your support for Stand Up To Bullying Day by making your own pledge on social media using the hashtag: #StandUpToBullying.

There’s lots of graphics available on the Stand Up To Bullying website which you can share with your friends and family to raise awareness.
