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.
