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.

Disrupting the cycle of bystanding
In 87% of cases of harm, there are bystanders present. While some people may feel comfortable initiating conversations about harm with others, many don’t.
Stymie allows bystanders to remain anonymous, giving them the courage to overcome the fears and social pressures that prevent them from speaking up. It also relieves feelings of helplessness for those who want to help their peers but don’t quite know how.About Stymie
