Preventing Bullying at School, at Home, and
Being the victim of bullying contributes to the risk of depression, suicide, sleep problems,
poor academic performance, substance abuse, and other social and health problems.
Bullying is any unwanted, aggressive behavior like making threats, spreading rumors,
attacking someone physically or verbally, or excluding someone from a group on purpose.
Youth bullying can happen at school, online, and at home. Parents, teachers, and other
adults can all help prevent bullying.
There is a lot of focus on bullying among children and youth, but it also happens to adults.
Workplace bullying is an on-going pattern of aggressive behavior, often involving an abuse
or misuse of power or authority. Information and resources on workplace bullying.
