Bullying is a problem that affects school-aged children everywhere. There has become a strong correlation between bullying and suicide rates among young people. Bullying is very toxic and can be scary to the victims as well as those standing by. Witnessing bullying can freeze you in time and leave you unsure as to how to respond. If you have witnessed bullying and/or know of someone who is being bullied, there are support services for you.
While browsing the web, I came across organizations that host anti-bullying weeks and months. These weeks and months are geared towards raising awareness, encouraging children and young people to challenge bullying, and getting the involvement of all schools and parents in bullying prevention. I found that these anti-bullying organizations were located in the US, Canada, and in the UK. The diverse locations of these organizations demonstrate how widespread the issue of bullying is. One of the best methods to tackling bullying is prevention and awareness.
