Instead of becoming a bystander to bullying, youth can become an “upstander” by taking action when they witness bullying occur. Their support can greatly impact their peer who is being bullied. Youth who are supported by upstanders tend to be less anxious and depressed. Upstanders will question the bullying behavior, redirect the conversation, help diffuse interactions and reach out person who is being bullied to make sure they are okay.
