You Wouldn't Say It To Their Face

The campaign, "You Wouldn't Say It to Their Face," raises awareness about the serious issue of cyberbullying in New Zealand and globally. It focuses on highlighting the effects of cyberbullying through the voices and lived experiences of those affected. By sharing personal stories, the campaign aims to shed light on the severity of the issue. Its objective is to increase understanding and awareness of cyberbullying's impact on individuals, both in New Zealand and worldwide.

Cyberbullying: The use of electronic communication to bully a person, typically by sending messages of an intimidating or threatening nature.

As social media has become more prominent, there has come an increase in the rates of cyberbullying. Cyberbullying is known to cause psychological, emotional and physical stress. It has a huge impact on mental health.

  • "Social media has made it so easy now for people to hide behind a screen and hurl abuse without ever having to see the effect that it has on the other person. Where people find it amusing to tear others down not comprehending or even thinking about what that person might already be facing in their own world - How their words could potentially be the key player in someone else’s decision to give up.”
