October is Bullying Prevention Month--Good Resources on Bullying
October is Bullying Prevention Month. Bullying is a challenge for students, parents and schools. The Journal of the American Medical Association reports that one-third of U.S. students experience bullying, either as a target or a perpetrator. More than 70 percent of teachers and students have witnessed bullying in their schools.
Mental Health America (MHA) has some good online resources on bullying, including a downloadable fact sheet you can print and share.
Also, the government website, stopbullying.gov has many resources, including a phone app and tips on how to respond.
