Hi @strawberryicecream, I’m so sorry to hear that your mental health hasn’t been the best because of the bullying that’s been happening. First of all, I commend your bravery! You have a good sense of awareness of your feelings. Secondly, please do seek help from professionals if you feel that your mental health is really taking a toll.

Meanwhile, here are some coping tips that might help:

  1. Talk to Someone: It’s important to share your feelings and experiences with someone you trust, such as a friend, family member, teacher, counselor, or a mental health professional. They can offer support and guidance.

  2. Report the Bullying: Inform a trusted adult or authority figure about the bullying, such as a teacher, school counselor, principal, or supervisor. They can take steps to address the situation.

  3. Self-Care: Take care of your physical and emotional well-being. Eat healthily, get regular exercise, and engage in activities that make you feel good. Practice relaxation techniques like deep breathing or meditation to reduce stress.

  4. Build a Support Network: Surround yourself with supportive friends and people who uplift you! A strong support system can help boost your self-esteem and resilience :slight_smile:

Please remember to be safe and inform someone you trust (as soon as possible) if you’re in danger too! Always remember that you’re not alone - there are people here (and in the real world!) ready to help you - all you need to do is reach out :slight_smile:

Is there a trigger that you’ve noticed that makes you feel sad / empty? I think it’s normal to have a change of mood but if your mood fluctuates very quickly without any triggers then it could be a cause of concern.
