The Police

Because it is illegal to encourage someone to take their own life, this means that you can report to the police and that there is a clear process that is followed after you report what is happening.

Thing to keep in mind

In some cases this will involve a court case.

It is important to remember that for the police to charge somebody with breaking a law, they have to have enough evidence to clearly prove who it was and exactly what happened.

The police also have to weigh up whether what is happening to you, meets all of the requirements of the law.

Sometimes, even though it is not ok and making you really upset, this is not enough to charge someone.
