Help Jesy Nelson stop bullying

‘Odd One Out’- The BBC documentary aired tonight sharing the story of Little Mix star Jesy Nelson and how she struggled to deal with cyber bullies and trolls. Jesy bravely spoke about how this affected her and led her to attempt suicide in a desperate attempt to end the pain she was feeling.
But it’s not just celebrities who receive online abuse – everyone with an online presence is susceptible. The most harrowing scenes in the film are of Jesy meeting Ann and Paul, the parents of Sian Waterhouse, a 16-year-old girl who died by suicide as a result of online trolling. She later meets a group of teenagers who have also been abused online, each of them thankful for each other and their willingness to share their stories.
The reality is that online abuse can affect anyone and we need to encourage young people to talk about this and understand the impact of their actions.
This petition is for the government to ensure that this BBC documentary is shared in every secondary school across Britain to educate kids and open up the discussion so that young people feel ok to speak up if they’re experiencing bullying.
780 young people under the age of 25 took their own life in 2018. Bullying was a contributory factor in many of those cases and we need to fight and do all we can to prevent anyone from feeling that way!
Jesy Nelson has a huge platform and will relate to young people. Please sign this petition to help this show be seen!
