My Friend is Being Bullied
TeenHealthFX thinks that it would be very helpful for your friend and her parents to be meeting with a reputable mental health professional who has experience working with children and teens who are being bullied. It is important that your friend has a safe, private space to talk about what she has been dealing with. It is also important for her parents to get some support and guidance in terms of how to effectively deal with this bullying situation since it sounds like the methods they have tried so far are not effective. FX suggests you encourage your friend to meet with a therapist. You could also speak to a counselor at school or your parents about this, so other adults can get involved to ensure your friend and her parents are getting the help they need.
FX also wants to encourage you to speak to someone about this situation, so you are not dealing with the situation and your feelings about all alone. You could speak to your parents, a school counselor or a private therapist about it so that you are getting the support and guidance you need to manage all of this and to be there for your friend in the best way you can.
If you live in northern New Jersey and need help finding a therapist you can call the Access Center from Atlantic Behavioral Health at 888-247-1400. Outside of this area you can log onto the US Department of Health and Human Services Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration website for referrals in your area. You can also contact your insurance company to get a list of in-network mental health providers or check with your school social worker or psychologist to get a list of referrals in your area.
