Did You Know October is National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month?

One in five teenagers report being bullied – but there is a lot we can do to prevent it! This month, the world comes together to raise awareness for bullying prevention. In 2006 PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center launched the Bullying Prevention Awareness Month campaign. Since then it has been an annual effort by agencies, schools, and communities to highlight bullying prevention education and awareness activities. StopBullying.gov will be sharing important resources to deepen the understanding and effects of bullying and what research has shown to be effective in prevention.
