Bullying is a widespread problem that can have serious consequences for our students, schools, and communities.
Bullied students exhibit elevated levels of depression and anxiety including feelings of unhappiness, loneliness, insecurity, and low self-esteem. Furthermore, victims of bullying as well as the bullies themselves are at increased risk of school dropout, poor psychosocial adjustment, and criminal activity.
The new TeenScreen Bullying Prevention Guide lists bullying prevention programs and curriculum tools for school and community settings. The Guide provides program descriptions, cost, and contact information, as well as target audience and time considerations.
