Anti-bullying week 2023

Home » News » Anti-bullying week 2023

Join us from Monday 13th to Friday 17th of November, as Lancashire Mind ‘Make A Noise About Bullying’.

What is Anti-Bullying Week?

“Too often, we are silent when we see bullying take place, silent about the hurt bullying causes, and silent when we hear bullying dismissed as ‘just banter’. It doesn’t have to be this way. Of course, we won’t like everyone and we don’t always agree, but we can choose respect and unity.

This Anti-Bullying Week let’s come together to have discussions about what bullying means to us, how banter can turn into something more hurtful, and what we can do to stop bullying. Together, we can make a difference and take a stand against bullying.

From the playground to Parliament, and from our phones to our homes, let’s make a noise about bullying.” Anti-Bullying Alliance

Why is Anti-Bullying Important to Lancashire Mind?

Both children and adults experience bullying. The effects can be long-lasting on their mental health and wellbeing. Bullying can bring about feelings of anxiety and depression, or lead to isolation and loneliness.

Bullying can have a profound impact on children and sometimes they need support to start a conversation.

Odd Socks!
During Anti-Bullying Week, children (and adults) are encouraged to wear odd socks in celebration of what makes us all unique!

Our ‘Sock-tacular Support‘ exercise is a simple way to engage children and help them to explore how they feel. It is important to understand who and what can help if they are worried about bullying and to get them talking.

Bullying Also Impacts Adults

With Lasting Effects on Their Mental Health

Adults can experience bullying from a variety of sources and for a variety of reasons. Adult bullying is often subtle, may be difficult to detect, carried out under the radar, and can make you question yourself. This can be discrimination, micro aggressions at work or in a relationship, racism, homophobia, or anything that makes an individual feel unsafe or excluded. (

How to be Mental Healthy at Work

Bullying can have a massive impact on mental health, both now and in the future. In fact, research has shown that if you’re bullied as a child, you might be twice as likely to use mental health services as an adult.”
