A Milton school is raising awareness about cyberbullying and reminding the community about the mental health support and resources that are available to those who may be struggling.
Over the month of March, Milton District High School, located at 396 Williams Ave., has been issuing various tips online about ways that students can get help.
“We know that arguing or engaging with the bully can make things worse. End the interaction safely, block the person, record and report the incident and get the help you need to recover from the incident,” said Milton District High School on Twitter.
