The ‘real scars’ of cyberbullying are portrayed in a new short film ahead of a online demonstration urging the European Commission to take action.
The video shows a teenager getting ready for school. But every time she receives a text message a new visible wound appears on her body.
The film, created by M&C Saatchi, aims to highlight The Big March - an online demonstration which takes place today.
The campaign is calling on the European Commission to take action against cyberbullying, and is being launched in the wake of new research by BeatBullying and #DeleteCyberbullying.
Studies found that 55 per cent of youngsters who have been bullied have become depressed as a result.
A further 35 per cent have also self harmed and 38 per cent have considered suicide.
