BULLY.ID - #DigitallyKind Combat Bullying & Cyberbullying

It is a project of Youth IGF Indonesia to protect Bullying and Cyberbullying victims.

Millions of Indonesian children are affected bullies each year. Advances in social media, email, instant messaging and cell phones, however have moved bullying from a schoolyard fear to a constant threat.

Cyberbullying is a critical issue to the health and mental health of our children and teens. Eighty-seven percent of youth have witnessed cyberbullying. Nearly two-thirds of students who have experienced cyberbullying stated that it affected their ability to learn and feel safe at school. In recent years cyberbullying has become widespread throughout junior high schools around the world, resulting in high numbers of adolescents affected by cybervictimization.

Cybervictimization is associated with negative psychological health outcomes. A research conducted with 102 seventh grade students in Yogyakarta were involved in the study: 72 (70.6%) boys and 30 (29.4%) girls. The majority (80%) of the students in this study reported experiencing cybervictimization occasionally to almost every day. The results suggest a positive relationship between cybervictimization and level of students’ psychological distress.

Cyberbullying is most problematic when it’s combined with in-person bullying. We know that traditional bullying results in higher rates of anxiety and depression and even higher risks of suicidal ideation and lower self-esteem. Digital literacy will not be enough without knowing the consequence of what we do and seeing the law enforcement works in the Country.

Bully.id provides confidential emotional support, analyse the case, advising legal actions to be taken and document the case for future Indonesia law-reforms.
