This National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence, headspace Dubbo is promoting ways young people and parents/carers can minimise potential damage caused by bullying.

Data collected through headspace National shows that approximately a quarter of young people aged 14-25 reported being bullied in the previous 12 months – whether verbally, physically, socially or online. headspace Dubbo Community Engagement Coordinator, Amy Mines, said it’s an issue that can affect everyone.

“Bullying can increase the risk of developing mental health problems for everyone involved but particularly those on the receiving end,” Ms Mines said.
