Blog Post #16- October Awareness Month

National Bullying Prevention Month


This month, we here at WHJE recognize National Bullying Prevention Month. Each school year, 1 in 5 students are bullied in some way. There are many different types of bullying such as cyberbullying, physical bullying, verbal bullying. In a study done through the organization known as “Do Something,” a statistic found that the older students get, the less likely they are to report an incident of bullying. They found that only 39% actually do tell a trusted adult if they or someone they know is getting bullied. Additionally, last year in the US alone, approximately 160,000 teens skipped school because of bullying.

If you see something, say something. Your voice matters. We are here for you.
