Join the movement! The End of Bullying Begins with Me: that’s the message during PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Month in October. It’s a time when communities can unite nationwide to raise awareness of bullying prevention through events, activities, outreach, and education. Resources from PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center make it easy to take action.
Studies also support the notion that aggressive behavior and substance use co-occur because each behavior is an attempt to cope with peer rejection. An extensive review of literature published in 2010 in School Psychology Quarterly supported the notion that risk factors for bullying and substance abuse overlap. Risk factors for bullying and bully victimization, such as social difficulties, negative community influences and academic struggles, are also risk factors for substance abuse.
We believe in a world that is fair, equal and free from all types of bullying.
Our mission is to combat bullying by tackling the root issues and to support young people aged 12-25 who are impacted. It is estimated that every 3 minutes at least one person will benefit from our support.
This website is a federal government website managed by the US Department of Health and Human Services that provides information and resources for students on bullying and cyberbullying.
