Webinar and Resources on Bullying
Bullying is when a person or group repeatedly tries to harm someone who is weaker or who they think is weaker. Often people dismiss bullying among kids as a normal part of growing up. But bullying is harmful. It can lead children and teenagers to feel tense and afraid. For some, the effects of bullying last a lifetime.
Healthy People 2020 is providing an educational webinar, “Spotlight on Health: Bullying Among Adolescents,” on September 27 from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. EDT that will highlight Healthy People 2020, bullying among adolescents, bullying prevention and systematic policy changes, and populations at risk.
