How can we challenge a conversation if we lack courage? Rachel Downie  discovered that in emergent situations, students often felt too frightened to come forward with possible life-saving information, due to their social expectations and Australia’s cultural acceptance of bullying. This led Rachel to developing Stymie – harm reporting without fear. She says, "It is extremely difficult at the moment to stand in front of students (thousands of them every week) and ask them to Say Something if they are seeing or experiencing harm, when in every corner of our society and at our highest levels of leadership, confidentiality, care, empathy and appropriate responses to harm are not being modelled. I think right now, is an opportunity for schools to find new and appropriate ways to give students more agency over what needs to change."
