THE CAUSE: BULLYING IN CANADA

Teasing, name-calling, hitting, spreading rumors or embarrassing someone in public are all aggressive behaviours and forms of bullying. Bullying can have short and long-term effects on someone’s physical and/or psychological health. Victims often feel isolated and unsafe. Research shows that bullying can result in depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and physical illness. In extreme cases, bullying can be fatal. In fact, over the past few years media has reported double the amount of cases of suicide among teens who ended their life after being the target of repeated harassment at school and in cyberspace.

I AM SOMEONE has partnered with with bc211 to offer youth an innovative texting tool that links them with the resources they need in support against bullying. By dialing 211, youths can send an anonymous text and gain access to non-judgmental, professional support, as well as options, information, and referrals to services in their community that can help. This service is now available throughout British Columbia 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year! Anyone can TEXT 211 for help if they are feeling bullied, alone or afraid.

I AM SOMEONE Ending Bullying Society has expanded across the province of British Columbia and now hopes to eventually provide their support across all of Canada. Youth today average 3400 texts per month to the I AM SOMEONE Ending Bullying Society, however this number is constantly increasing.
