A RIVERINA man who was subject to sustained cyber bullying at school has used his torment to develop a tool for others.

"I thought about what happened to me and what I have been through with bullying and I wanted to help others," Mr Harrison said.

"I am hoping to help other people going through cyber bullying and let them know they are not alone.”

Though the Facebook page, Mr Harrison shares information and posts inspirational quotes and photos to inspire bullying victims.

"Too many young people are [committing suicide] from getting bullied,” he said.
