I'm Just Me - Your #1 Source For Anti-Bullying
We Can’t Do It Alone. It’s Exhausting.
Welcome to the I'm Just Me Movement Anti-Bullying Resource Center. We’ve shared some resourceful posts on bullying on our website, where we have included personal stories to help you learn from real-life experiences from the childhood bullying crisis. We're always here to listen, respond, and ease your troubles.
If bullying is getting really serious we want to make sure that you don't take it lightly. If you've tried everything in your power but to no avail and are struggling to help your child through this impossible time of their lives, it's time to take it a step further. It’s time to seek help!
There’s nothing wrong with asking for help. “Ask for help. Not because you are weak. But because you want to remain strong.” – Les Brown.
We have each other’s back. On this page, you will find useful resources that can assist you in putting an end to the oppression that surrounds you and your child.
How To Get Immediate Help
If you feel that your child’s bullying crisis is out of your hands, and your child needs immediate help, don’t waste another minute. If you fear your child may be any harm, it’s time to take action. Your child is important. We recommend you follow the actions below as recommended by stopbullying.gov:
● If your child, or any other child, is at immediate risk - call 911
● If your child, or any child you know, is considering suicide -contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline
● If your child needs mental health or addiction insurance help - visit Mental Health and Addiction Insurance Help.
If a child is being bullied in school - contact the teacher, school principal, school counselor, or State Department of Education immediately
If you ever feel the need to share a thought, a story, or want some valuable advice, you can contact us any time. Besides ImJustMe.me, many other government and non-government bodies are also working hard to eliminate bullying from our society. Here’s a list of some additional sources you will find helpful:
Stopbullying.gov is a federal government website that helps parents, school teachers and staff, and other involved adults on how to prevent kids from being bullied. It focuses on creating a peaceful school environment where every child feels safe. The website offers some practical insight on what is bullying, cyberbullying, who is at risk, and how to prevent and respond to bullying on the spot.
STOMP Out Bullying™ is a national nonprofit organization aimed at preventing bullying, cyberbullying, and similar digital abuse. They offer interactive activities, including online toolkits for educators and students, and educational blogs for parents. Through a series of campaigns and events, their goal is to involve their audience and equip them with the right skills to prevent bullying. They offer free and confidential help chat on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Teaching Tolerance is a Southern Poverty Law Center project and aims to develop a culturally, ethnically, and religiously diverse classroom environment. Other than extensive discussions on some very important tolerance and bullying topics, they also offer workshops, training sessions, and webinars to educate the school staff on building a healthy environment inside the class. They offer free resources and support for promoting tolerance.
Every child’s life is worth saving. A child should never be brought to a place where they even consider taking their own lives. If your child or a child that you know of is thinking of suicide, then this serious matter needs IMMEDIATE attention. We must do everything in our power to save a child’s life. Contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline if you think your child is contemplating suicide. Call 1-800-273-8255 or contact them on their website for free, confidential support 24/7.
