It takes courage to say something.
Stymie empowers young people to ask for help when they need support, or if they are seeing or experiencing harm.
Stymie provides online reporting for schools. Encrypted, anonymous notifications are delivered within seconds to authorised recipients, who respond according to their wellbeing framework. The notification provides the option to include screenshots or images that validate the notification.
Suicide ideation, discrimination, anxiety, depression, bullying, self-harm, physical fights, sexual assault, family violence and illegal activity are reported using Stymie.
Our purpose is to support psychological safety by empowering young people with the self-belief that they can #saysomething on behalf of themselves or as a bystander for someone else.
What schools are saying
Stymie gives our students the opportunity to do the right thing. It has empowered them to stand up for themselves, their friends and our entire school community.
Stymie has become an integral part of how we support student emotional health and wellbeing at Harristown.
Parents and students know that Stymie is reliable and confidential and that the message gets to the right people immediately so that action can be taken to support our students.
We help to build psychological safety and challenge harmful social norms.
We help your community to challenge the social norm of ‘staying silent’. In doing so, we empower bystanders and people who are being harmed to take some action.
Overcoming the fears and social pressures that prevent many of us from being able to say something is a challenging and sometimes frightening process.
Being able to anonymously report, relieves feelings of helplessness for those who want to help their peers but don’t quite know how. Our purpose is to support you in creating an environment where harm can be minimised and effective action can be maximised.
What does Stymie do for young people?
Of every 30 young people in Australia seven will be dealing with a mental health issue, yet only two will reach out for support. Stymie works with you to give the young people you are working with, the power to say something or ask for help. We are an early intervention initiative that changes and saves lives.
