National Bullying Prevention Month - October

National Bullying Prevention Month, recognized during the month of October, is a nationwide campaign that encourages schools, communities, parents, and children to work together to stop bullying and cyberbullying by increasing awareness of the impact of bullying on all children of all ages.


Stop Bullying on the Spot


When adults respond quickly and consistently to bullying behavior they send the message that it is not acceptable. Research shows this can stop bullying behavior over time.

Parents, school staff, and other adults in the community can help kids prevent bullying by talking about it, building a safe school environment, and creating a community-wide bullying prevention strategy.

To learn the causes, signs, impact, and prevalence of bullying and cyberbullying, and where to turn to for help, visit our LEARNING CENTER .
