I'm in year 7 and this girl keeps picking on me. She's really upsetting me and I cry in the school toilets at break times. I feel like I have no friends.

Chat Health (Nurse) / 13 Jun 16:43

I am really sorry to hear that, you need tell somebody what is happening such as parents, teacher, school nurse, friend or somebody you trust

I get bullied at school. I've told the teachers but they don't do anything to help.

That is very unfortunate that the teachers have not acted on you being bullied, you need to find another member of staff at school that you trust and will listen to you e.g. the head of year. You could make an appointment to see your school nurse or tell your parents.

Chat Health (Nurse) / 13 Jun 16:54

Why are people bullied? for all sorts of reasons such as race, religion, appearance, sexual orientation, because you have a disability or because of your home circumstances. Sometimes you can be bullied for no reason.

Chat Health (Nurse) / 13 Jun 16:57

Cyber bullying is becoming more common. This is any bullying that involves mobile phones or the internet for example, sending offensive text messages and emails, circulating degrading images on the internet or pretending to be someone else on a social network site like Facebook
