    Liking this seemed insppropriate! Really it’s a thank you for sharing. I do a lot of training with school staff about spotting and supporting emotional and mental health difficulties and cyber bullying comes up on nearly every course – either as a precipitating factor or a maintaining factor for mental health difficulties.
