Stymie’s Mission
We will change the cultural acceptance of bullying, by encouraging the understanding of the social responsibilities among bystanders.
"My darling child, you're not ugly. Society is."
~ ANON
 
One in four Australian kids are bullied at school. They are bullied most or every day. Persistent bullying has been proven to lead to increased cases of depression, reduced academic achievement, social exclusion, self-harm and suicide. In 2012, there were 12 suicides in this country that have been attributed to repeated acts of bullying.
 
The word stymie means to stop or thwart. We want it to stop. And so do your kids.
We are independent and confidential and we are providing a way for Australian students, to support their peers in cases of overt and covert bullying. We have designed a notification system to empower them with the confidence to stand up for each other without fear.
