Options Other than Reporting
Speak to a safe adult such as a parent, teacher, or school counsellor for advice. Adults can offer insight and options
that you or your friends may not have considered and have more authority to address concerns.
If you are not able to identify a safe adult to talk to, contact
Kids Help Phone
(1-800-668-6868) and speak with a counsellor to receive help on what to do next.
If you are unable or unwilling to seek support from family, another safe adult or a counsellor, talk to a close friend.
