October is Bullying Prevention Month!
Did you know? According to the National Center for Education Statistics, 1 in 5 students ages twelve to eighteen reported being bullied at school. The impact of bullying in the school culture and climate, as well as the mental health of both the target and those who bully, is significant and the need for further understanding of how we can prevent bullying is essential.
Developed with funding from the New York State Office of Mental Health, MHANYS School Mental Health Resource & Training Center has put together a comprehensive series of resources for schools to make the connection between mental health education and bullying prevention, and knowledge on how to become more involved. We hope you find these tools helpful in creating a safe space in your schools.
