The Impact of Cyberbullying on Mental Health: the Struggle of the LGBTIQ+ Community



For Bullying Prevention Month and Mental Health Month, we shed the light on the cyberbullying that minorities such as LGBTIQ+ people suffer from.


With the development of the digital sphere and the spectacular rise in the use of social media, it became easier for bullies to target people who already suffer from discrimination and homophobia in real life. Facing rejection and questioning their place in the world, LGBTIQ+ people find refuge online where they can share with people who understand them and be part of a loving community. Unfortunately, cyberbullies are restless and hate speech is far from being tackled.
