Information and tips for children and young people
Cyberbullying is the deliberate insulting, threatening, embarrassing or harassing of others online. Are you affected? With the app from www.klicksafe you can get first help.
Worry phone and online counselling
Are you worried or is something bothering you? You don't have anyone to listen to you or to whom you would like to confide?
Then maybe a call to the children's and young people's hotline on 116 111 or 0800 111 0 333 can help you.
This is the number against grief. If you prefer to write, there is also an online counselling service.
Alternatively, the Youth Welfare Office recommends the"Jugendnotmail", a free online counselling service for children and young people seeking help. Confidential, available 24 hours a day, no taboo topics.
All shops and businesses in Bocholt that have the Notinsel sign on their door signal to children:"Where we are, you are safe". The Notinsel gives children who feel threatened and need help a place of refuge where they will be helped.
