October Is Bullying Prevention Awareness Month

October 22, 2013

October is Bullying Prevention Awareness Month. Nearly 30 percent of adolescents in the United States report some experience with bullying, whether as the victim, the bully, or both. The Federal Partners in Bullying Prevention have launched activities and initiatives for the month-long observance to help individuals, families, schools, and communities raise awareness about bullying prevention.


StopBullying.gov offers free online resources in support of Bullying Prevention Awareness Month, including a printable infographic highlighting facts and information about bullying prevention.
