Cyberbullying is no joke!International day of action against cyberbullying

Under the motto "Together against cyberbullying", JUUUPORT sends out a strong signal against hate and insults online every year on the third Friday in November. The occasion is the International Day of Action against Cyberbullying, which this year takes place on November 17. With a social media campaign, the advice and education platform wants to make it clear: "Cyberbullying is no fun!"

According to a study by Techniker Krankenkasse, cyberbullying has become a permanent problem. Around 17 percent of schoolchildren in Germany are affected. In other words, more than 1.8 million children and young people. As the JIM Study 2022 shows, around 50 percent of young people have recently been confronted with offensive comments online. The consequences of cyberbullying can be serious. They range from physical complaints such as headaches and stomach aches to mental health problems such as anxiety disorders or depression. Some of those affected also have suicidal thoughts.

Social media campaign "This is no fun"

The nationwide online counseling platform JUUUPORT is making it its mission to draw attention to the issue of cyberbullying on the occasion of the day of action. JUUUPORT scouts on Instagram and TikTok are already showing that cyberbullying is by no means harmless in the run-up to the 2023 Day of Action against Cyberbullying. They are campaigning for respectful behavior in the online world. In doing so, they want to encourage affected people to confide in others and get help.

Various social media creators are supporting this year's day of action to raise awareness of the important issue of cyberbullying. The aim is to make as many young people as possible aware of the confidential help offered by JUUUPORT.
