The adult can also be someone at school, such as a teacher, administrator, school counselor, or someone you trust. Sometimes the first person who you tell might not be able to help you, but don’t give up! Keep telling until you connect with someone who can help.

NOTE: It could be helpful to have your Student Action Plan, either a blank version to fill out together or one in which you have already shared some thoughts.

No one should ever go through bullying alone. br>
