All of us at one time or another will have been bullied, either at home, at school or in the work place and it’s an experience that often leaves its mark.

So our post today aims to share some awesome organisations doing great work helping children who have been bullied, as well as offering you a space to share your own stories about being bullied or perhaps even, being the bully. We tend to forget that bullies have a story too, and that we can’t truly address this kind of behaviour without seeing this often neglected part of the equation.

If you haven’t checked them out yet, Ditch The Label does some incredible work on this front, and if you like the sound of what they do, you can get involved as well.

Another one to watch is Anti Bullying Pro, which also offers free teaching resources and some brilliant stories and stats on bullying in schools in the UK.

If you’d like to read a little more about how bullying affects mental health, we recently wrote an article for The Huffington Post about this and we’d love to hear your thoughts.
