Where can I seek help?

The ‘S’ in WITS stands for “Seek help.” This is an important part of using your WITS. If you’re being faced with bullying or teasing and you need help, try asking an adult you trust like a parent, teacher, police officer or older kid. If you don’t get the help you need, keep asking other people you trust until someone is able to help.

Calling one of the telphone numbers below can also let you talk to a trustworthy adult who is willing to help:
