The campaign is called Stop Hating Online and it outlines what constitutes cyberbullying and what to do if you’re a victim or a victim’s parent. The goal is to start a national conversation about the impacts of cyberbullying, to give parents and teens the tools to stop it.

Get Cyber Safe now has comprehensive information on cyberbullying for both teens and the adults in their lives, on everything from recognizing the warning signs, to step-by-step instructions for dealing with it, to ways to encourage bystanders to stand up to cyberbullying.
