Mind Matters: What Happens When Children Are Threatened and Bullied?

After 17-year-old Ain Husniza Saiful Nizam started the #MakeSchoolASaferPlace movement, she received rape threats, lewd comments and harsh criticisms. Her experience shows that bullying and violence against children is more prevalent than ever, especially on social media. On this show, two teenage girls share their experiences of being bullied and body-shamed, while consultant psychiatrist Assoc Prof Dr Amer Siddiq bin Amer Nordin discusses the impact of bullying on mental health and how to improve access to mental health support for young people.

** If you need emotional support or just want to talk to someone anonymously, you can call Befrienders KL at 03 7627 2929.
