Are you dealing with bullying?
Know that it is never your fault if you’ve experienced bullying and you’re not alone. It can be important to talk to an adult you trust about what you are experiencing. This could be a family member, teacher, school counsellor or Teen Clinic. It can also include a free phone line or free drop-in counselling.
