Reporter: NATIONALLY ABOUT ONE OUT OF EVERY 5 STUDENTS IS IS A VICTIM OF BULLYING. MANY SCHOOLS HAVE PROTOCALLS IN PLACE FOR STUDENTS TO FOLLOW IF THEY FEEL THEY MAY BE BULLIED BUT FOR ONE TEENAGER IT WAS NOT ENOUGH. Reporter: BULLYING COMES IN DIFFERENT FORMS. NAME-CALLING, MESSAGES ON FACEBOOK. GETTING TOLD TO KILL YOURSELF. Reporter: AS A MIDDLE SCHOOLER, IT TIFFANY SAYS SHE ENDURED TWO YEARS OF IT. I TRIED TO IGNORE IT BUT IT GOT TO THE POINT I COULD NOT IGNORE IT. IT GOT ME IN A BAD PLACE. Reporter: TO WHERE SHE HARMED HERSELF PHYSICALLY. I CUT MYSELF IN SCHOOL ONE DAY. IT WENT ON FOR A COUPLE YEARS BEFORE I NOTICED. AND THEN I STARTED NOTICING MARKS ON HER ARMS. Reporter: SHE SPENT FIVE DAYS IN A FACILITY. WHEN SHE CAME HOME. WHAT DOES SHE SAY ABOUT SCHOOL? SHE DID NOT WANT TO GO. SCARED SHE WOULD START BACK UP CUTTING AND EVERYTHING AGAIN. SO WE DID RESEARCH. WE FOUND CYBERACADEMY OF SUCCESS SUB SUCCESS.
