Who We Are
Bullyid is an independent charity organisation for Indonesians seeking mental health and legal support by making mental health and legal consultation more accessible and affordable. We were founded in early 2020 by a group inspiring individual who are committed to raising awareness and providing support to victims of bullying and abuse, as well as reducing the stigma associated with these issues and encouraging people to seek support when they need it.
About Our Work
As of February 2020, more than 45% Indonesian youth aged 14 to 24 reported that they had experienced cyberbullying.
As a digital service, Bullyid Indonesia has become increasingly critical since the Covid-19 pandemic, delivering mental health support services that were able to operate normally despite the Indonesian government’s regional lockdown. This policy has had a wide range of impacts on people’s lives across the nation, including increased social media consumption as a way for professionals and students to carry out their responsibilities from home. With the increased usage of digital platform and internet activity, people are more prone to cyberbully.
The work-from-home policy has also increased the risk of domestic abuse. Not only that, but layoffs by several companies, which resulted in an increase in unemployment, had an impact on people’s mental health throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. The victims of these actions require assistance, yet they are unable to leave their homes due to current circumstances. Bullyid Indonesia allow these people to receive assistance while remaining at the comfort of their home.
We ensure victims of bullying, abuse, along with people living with mental illness are at the heart of everything we do. They play a critical role in shaping our organisation in developing and establishing expert advice, education resources, support groups, training our volunteers while also driving our campaigns and assist workplace and institutions in addressing these issues.
Bullyid provides free mental health support and legal knowledge assistance to those in need.
