What Teens Can Do
Bullying stops us from being who we want to be, and prevents us from expressing ourselves freely, and might even make us feel unsafe. If you are bullied, say something! If you are bullying, it’s not cool!
I might be being bullied
- SPEAK UP: If you feel uncomfortable with the comments or actions of someone… tell someone! It is better to let a trusted adult know, than to let the problem continue.
- Get familiar with what bullying is and what it is not . If you recognize any of the descriptions, you should stay calm, stay respectful, and tell an adult as soon as possible.
- If you feel like you are at risk of harming yourself or others get help now !
Someone is bullying me online or via text message
- Remember, bullying does not only happen at school. It can happen anywhere, including through texting, the internet and social media.
- Learn more about cyberbullying and how to respond if it is happening to you.
I don’t get bullied, but my friend does
- Learn how you can be more than a bystander .
I want to contribute to anti-bullying initiatives in my school or community
The Federal Partners in Bullying Prevention invite you to take action to make a difference in your community! By following the steps in this youth engagement toolkit, you can join other youth leaders across the country and the Federal Partners to organize a bullying prevention social and educational event.
- Youth Engagement Toolkit - PDF
- Use tools like the Youth Leaders' Toolkit - PDF to work with younger kids.
- Read about how other teens have gotten involved.
- Work with your school to contribute your views on bullying.
I did something I regret and my friends won’t talk to me anymore. What can I do?
- If possible, try to speak privately with each of them to offer an apology.
- Acknowledge that what you said or did offended or hurt them.
- Explain that you are trying to learn from your mistake and ask if they will help you understand how it made them feel.
Someone I know said something that really offended me and my friends. I want to call them out. What should I do?
- If someone you know said something that hurt you, talk to them privately. Tell them how their words or actions made you feel.
- Try to learn more about what was behind their words before judging or blaming them. Talk it out. Listen.
- Agree together to have an open conversation and learn from each other so you can both move on from the incident without causing more harm.
- If the person continues to be offensive, walk away and don’t engage with their behavior.
My friends want to give the “silent treatment” to another student because of something they said, and they want me to join in. What should I do?
- Don’t participate in public or online shaming. You don’t need to make a public comment about it.
- Speak to your friends and explain why you don’t want to do it. For example, you could say, “I disagree with them, but I don’t want to bully anyone.” You can also encourage your friends not to do it.
Violence Prevention: School-based Anti-bullying Interventions
About this resource:.

The last reviewed date indicates when the evidence for this resource last underwent a comprehensive review.
Workgroups: Mental Health and Mental Disorders Workgroup , Injury and Violence Prevention Workgroup
The Community Preventive Services Task Force (CPSTF) recommends school-based anti-bullying interventions to reduce bullying experiences and improve mental health among students. Systematic review evidence shows that when interventions are implemented in schools, students report fewer episodes of bullying perpetration, fewer episodes of bullying victimization, and fewer mental health symptoms like anxiety and depression.
Interventions may include:
- Professional consultation to school administrators and staff on evidence-based policies and practices
- Training for teachers, counselors, and staff on how to identify and respond to aggressive or bullying behaviors or signs of victimization
- School-wide activities and media events
- Student assignments and letters from school administrators to engage parents and caregivers
CPSTF points out that more research is needed to:
- Identify interventions to achieve a greater impact on bullying outcomes. Most studies included in this systematic review reported small effects on bullying outcomes.
- Examine the effectiveness of interventions for those who disproportionately experience bullying, like students who self-identify as LGBTQI+, have disabilities, or are overweight

Fast Facts: Preventing Bullying
Bullying is a form of youth violence and an adverse childhood experience (ACE). CDC defines bullying as any unwanted aggressive behavior(s) by another youth or group of youths, who are not siblings or current dating partners, that involves an observed or perceived power imbalance, and is repeated multiple times or is highly likely to be repeated. Bullying may inflict harm or distress on the targeted youth including physical, psychological, social, or educational harm. Common types of bullying include:
- Physical such as hitting, kicking, and tripping
- Verbal including name-calling and teasing
- Relational/social such as spreading rumors and leaving out of the group
- Damage to property of the victim
Bullying can also occur through technology, which is called electronic bullying or cyberbullying. A young person can be a perpetrator, a victim, or both (also known as “bully/victim”). For more information about bullying definitions please see Bullying Surveillance Among Youths: Uniform Definitions for Public Health and Recommended Data Elements, Version 1 [8.64 MB, 116 Pages, 508] .
Bullying is widespread in the United States. Bullying negatively impacts all youth involved including those who are bullied, those who bully others, and those who witness bullying, known as bystanders.
- Bullying is common . About 1 in 5 high school students reported being bullied on school property. More than 1 in 6 high school students reported being bullied electronically in the last year.
- Some youth experience bullying more than others . Nearly 40% of high school students who identify as lesbian, gay, or bisexual and about 33% of those who were not sure of their sexual identity experienced bullying at school or electronically in the last year, compared to 22% of heterosexual high school students. About 30% of female high school students experienced bullying at school or electronically in the last year, compared to about 19% of males. Nearly 29% of White high school students experienced bullying at school or electronically in the last year compared to about 19% of Hispanic and 18% of Black high school students.
- Bullying is a frequent discipline problem . Nearly 14% of public schools report that bullying is a discipline problem occurring daily or at least once a week.
- Reports of bullying are highest in middle schools (28%) followed by high schools (16%), combined schools (12%), and primary schools (9%).
- Reports of cyberbullying are highest in middle schools (33%) followed by high schools (30%), combined schools (20%), and primary schools (5%).
Bullying can result in physical injury, social and emotional distress, self-harm, and even death. It also increases the risk for depression, anxiety, sleep difficulties, lower academic achievement, and dropping out of school. Youth who bully others are at increased risk for substance misuse, academic problems, and experiencing violence later in adolescence and adulthood. Youth who bully others and are bullied themselves suffer the most serious consequences and are at greater risk for mental health and behavioral problems.
Bullying is preventable. There are many factors that may increase or decrease the risk for perpetrating or experiencing bullying. To prevent bullying, we must understand and address the factors that put people at risk for or protect them from violence . CDC developed, Youth Violence Prevention Resource for Action [4 MB, 64 Pages] , to help communities take advantage of the best available evidence to prevent youth violence. This resource is also Cdc-pdf available in Spanish [3.89 MB, 68 Pages, 508] and can be used as a tool in efforts to impact individual behaviors as well as the relationship, family, school, community, and societal risk and protective factors for violence. The approaches in this resource, particularly universal school-based programs that strengthen youths’ skills and modify the physical and social environment, have been shown to reduce violence and bullying or key risk factors.
Different types of violence are connected and often share root causes. Bullying is linked to other forms of violence through shared risk and protective factors . Addressing and preventing one form of violence may have an impact on preventing other forms of violence.

"As a counselor I have seen different types of bullying occurring in campus and especially in social media. An example of the different types of bullying I have seen are physical bullying, verbal bullying, relational bullying, and the most common one cyber bullying. The issue with cyber bullying is that teenagers, more than half percent of the time are in these social networks and it is a problem. I’ve seen numerous of times where a person's profile gets hacked and the bully posts embarrassing images, rumors about the victim, or even statuses. The consequence of cyber bullying includes being suspended from school and being removed from sports teams and school organizations. Depending upon the acts and motives of the bully, there are legal consequences of cyberbullying and charges that may be filed against him or her. Educating bullies and showing them consequences of cyber bullying, may help reduce incidents of cyberbullying." submitted by counselor Advice Cyberbulling is bullying that takes place using electronic technolgy. Examples include mean text messages or emails, rumors sent by email or posted on social networking sites, and embarassing pictures, videos, websites, or fake profiles. Physical bullying can include harassment like name calling or stalking behaviors, and more violent abuses like hitting or intimidating. By Patrick Larlar, Hector Coronado, Mariah School Personnel

Anti-bullying week 2023: 5 ways we support schools to deal with bullying
Bullying in school or college can have a devastating effect on children, young people and their families. We’re committed to helping schools tackle bullying, supporting them to create a calm environment where everyone feels safe.
Here are 5 ways we’re helping schools to prevent bullying.
1. Relationships, sex and health education (RSHE)
Our relationships, sex and health education (RSHE) guidance supports schools to build a curriculum that reflects diversity of views and backgrounds. It encourages respect for others and teaches young people about healthy relationships.
RSHE includes teaching about bullying, positive friendships, and equality.
For example, young people might learn about different types of bullying, the impact of bullying, the responsibilities of bystanders to report bullying and how and where to get help.
2. Teaching about online safety
Schools should also teach young people about online safety , including what online bullying can look like and where to get help and support.
Our Teaching Online Safety in Schools guidance aims to support schools to teach pupils how to stay safe online through a range of school subjects, including RSHE, Citizenship and Computing.
3. Guidance on bullying
Our Preventing and Tackling Bullying guidance provides further advice for schools on preventing and responding to bullying, including advice for head teachers and school staff on online bullying.
As part of this, schools should have policies in place to help head teachers confidently deal with any behaviour that could disrupt a calm and welcoming learning environment.
4. Mental Health Support Teams (MHSTs)
Bullying can impact children’s mental health.
We’re helping schools and colleges to support the mental health and wellbeing of young people by increasing the number of Mental Health Support Teams (MHSTs). These teams support schools and colleges to develop their approach to mental health and wellbeing, and to work with specialist services in the community.
We’ve also introduced grants for schools and colleges to train a senior mental health lead . This training helps schools to provide support for children who are struggling with their mental wellbeing.
5. Behaviour Hubs
Improving behaviour can help create a calm learning environment that is free from bullying. We’ve recently updated our guidance on Behaviour in Schools , which provides advice on creating a positive, safe school culture.
To build on this, we’re investing £10 million in Behaviour Hubs. These help schools that have exemplary positive behaviour cultures to work closely with other schools that want to turn around their behaviour, alongside access to central support and a taskforce of advisers.

What is bullying? “Bullying is persistent unwelcome behaviour, mostly using unwarranted or invalid criticism, nit-picking, fault-finding, also exclusion, isolation, being singled out and treated differently, being shouted at, humiliated, excessive monitoring, having verbal and written warnings imposed, and much more. In the workplace, bullying usually focuses on distorted or fabricated allegations of underperformance.” http://www.bullyonline.org/workbully/bully.htm
There are many ways to bully other people. For instance : swearing at them, saying or writing nasty things about them, leaving them out of activities, not talking to them, threatening them, making them feel uncomfortable and intimidate them. Furthermore, taking or damaging their things, hitting or kicking them, or force them do things they don't want to do. Bullying is wrong behaviour which makes the person being bullied feel afraid or uncomfortable and causes future problems. • “Bullying is when someone or a group of people with more power repeatedly and intentionally causes hurt or harm to another person or group of people who feel helpless to respond. Bullying can continue over time, is often hidden from adults and will probably continue if no action is taken.” http://www.ncab.org.au/whatisbullying/
Bullying isn't: • single episodes of social rejection or dislike • single episode of bad acting • random acts of aggression or intimidation • mutual arguments, disagreements or fights. These actions can cause great distress. However, they're not examples of bullying unless someone is deliberately and repeatedly doing them to you.
School Bullying Bullying can occur in nearly any part in or around the school building, though it may occur more frequently in physical education classes and activities, recess, hallways, bathrooms, on school buses and while waiting for buses, and in classes that require group work and/or after school activities. Bullying in school sometimes consists of a group of students taking advantage of or isolating one student in particular and gaining the loyalty of bystanders who want to avoid becoming the next victim. These bullies may taunt and tease their target before physically bullying the target. Bystanders may participate or watch, sometimes out of fear of becoming the next victim. Bullying can also be perpetrated by teachers and the school system itself: There is an inherent power differential in the system that can easily predispose to subtle or covert abuse (relational aggression or passive aggression), humiliation, or exclusion — even while maintaining overt commitments to anti-bullying policies. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bullying#School_bullying
Different Kinds of School Bullying • 1. Physical bullying includes any physical contact that would hurt or injure a person like hitting, kicking, punching, etc. Taking something that belongs to someone else and destroying it would also be considered a type of physical bullying. For example, if someone was walking down the street and someone came up to them and shoved them to the ground, that would be physical bullying. In elementary and middle schools, 30.5% of all bullying is physical. • 2. Verbal bullying is name-calling, making offensive remarks, or joking about a person's religion, gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or the way they look. For example, if there was a group of kids who made fun of another kid because he couldn't run as fast as everyone else, it would be an example of verbal bullying. 46.5% of all bullying in schools is the verbal type. Verbal aggression is when a bully teases someone. It can also include a bully making verbal threats of violence or aggression against someone's personal property.
Different Kinds of School Bullying • 3. Indirect bullying includes spreading rumors or stories about someone, telling others about something that was told to you in private, and excluding others from groups. An example would be if you started a rumor that a boy in your class likes playing with dolls, and if the reason that you made up the story was because you thought it was funny. This would be indirect bullying. Indirect bullying accounts for 18.5% of all bullying. • 4. Social alienation is when a bully excludes someone from a group on purpose. It also includes a bully spreading rumors, and also making fun of someone by pointing out their differences. • 5. Intimidation is when a bully threatens someone else and frightens that person enough to make him or her do what the bully wants. • 6. Cyberbullying is done by sending messages, pictures, or information using electronic media, computers (email & instant messages), or cell phones (text messaging & voicemail). For instance, if you sent a picture of a snake in an email to a person because you know that they are afraid of snakes, that would be an example of cyberbullying. According to a survey done in 2003 only 4% of bullying is listed as "other types" and this would include cyberbullying. Even though this number seems small, the growth of this type of bullying is going up fast because of the spread of technology around the world. http://library.thinkquest.org/07aug/00117/typesbullying.htm
Why do people bully others? • People bully for different reasons. Those who bully persistently are likely to do so in order to dominate others and improve their social status. They may have high self-esteem ,show little regret for their bullying behaviour and not see bullying as wrong. • Other people may bully out of anger or frustration, they may struggle socially and could have also been victims of bullying. • http://au.reachout.com/Bullying
When bullying takes part • In 2008 at least 20 per cent of children ages two through 17 experienced one or more forms of bullying during the past year. Bullies themselves are more likely to be involved in other problem behaviours, such as drinking and smoking , and to show poorer school adjustment both in terms of academic achievement and their perception of school climate. Bullies anti-social behaviour may persist into adulthood. One study found that males who were bullies in grades six through nine were more likely to commit a crime in young adulthood than were their non-bully peers: nearly 60 percent were convicted of a crime by age 24 and 40 percent had three or more convictions. • Children themselves view bullying as an important problem, particularly at school, which is where most bullying occurs. More eight -to 15- years old named teasing and bullying as ''big problems'', than those who named drugs or alcohol, racism, AIDS or the pressure to have sex according to one report. According to children ages 12-18 who reported being bullied in the 2007-2008 school year , 79 percent of bullying occuredwithin the school 23 percent on school grounds , eight percent on the school bus, and four percent somewhere else. Targeting the victim's physical appearance and stature is the most frequent type of bullying. Bullying starting on preschool age.
Wherethe Bullying takes place Bullying most of the times happens in school. The claim is sometimes made that most bullying takes place on the way to school, not at school. However, research shows that two to three times as many students are bullied at school compared to those who are bullied on the way to school. Approximately 40 to 75 percent of bullying takes place during breaks, in the schoolyard, in the corridors, at recess, or in more secluded places, like bathrooms. It can also take place during classes unless the teacher is attentive and cracks down on any tendencies toward bullying. Without a doubt, school is the place where most bullying occurs. This puts particular responsibility on school leaders and teachers. It is clear that the behavior, attitudes, and routines of teachers and other school personnel have a decisive effect on the extent of bullying in the individual school or class. Of course, parents, caregivers and supervisors in many other places, in kindergartens, playgrounds, and sports and youth clubs, for example, also need to be alert to detect bullying or tendencies toward bullying.
According to Hoover, Oliver and Hazler 1992 most of the bullying happens at school and on the school bus to and from school.”I know most of the bullying for me in grade school happened to and from school. In my case one of the safety boys who was supposed to be our friend was really a bully.I have talked to students who have said that they have been bullied in the classroom when the teacher isn’t looking. This is why we have to continue to look for signs in our children.If they are upset all the time or are not eating or don’t want to go on the bus or go to school this is when you have to step in and find out what is going on. Think when you were a kid and how you didn’t want to be the kid that was the cry baby and then take the appropriate action.”

‘I beg you to ask for help’: Penn Middle School speaker talks bullying, mental health support
Standing on the Penn Middle School auditorium stage, John Halligan looked out at more than 500 students, many of whom reflected the same youthful innocence as his 13-year-old son, Ryan, who died by suicide in 2003.
Just as Halligan has done for the past 18 years — for about 1 million students across 2,400 schools — he told Penn Middle the story of Ryan’s death. Halligan hoped to reach even one student, yearning to prevent every parent’s nightmare: the loss of a child.
“When you’re in this world, you don’t want anybody else to be a part of this club,” Halligan said. “It’s just too much. So we’re always about prevention.”
The mental health of students and teachers has come to the forefront of education since the pandemic. State grants are allowing schools to provide greater access to mental health counselors and offer more social- emotional learning opportunities in the classroom, said Penn- Trafford School District counselor Suzie Schrinel.
Penn Middle provides counselors and a Student Assistance Program to help students who are struggling. Penn-Trafford also partners with Safe2Say Something , a helpline where students can anonymously report incidents such as bullying or threats.
Safe2Say Something is mandated in school districts across the state by the Pennsylvania General Assembly as of January 2019. In the 2022-23 academic year, the helpline addressed more than 31,000 reports — the highest number received to date, according Brittney Kline, its program director.
Reports related to students’ physical and mental well-being were up last year by more than 20% from 2021-22.
Penn Middle’s principal, Jim Simpson, knows bullying happens among his students. He knows students might come to school with anything but learning on their mind.
“People can sometimes think that people like me don’t care about those things,” said Simpson, who has been a principal for more than 20 years. “It’s actually the most important thing I do. Algebra, English, science — that’s all very important, but the most important thing is (to) make sure children are here and ready to learn.”
To bring the topics of bullying and mental health to light, Simpson and Schrinel arranged for a visit from Halligan in October.
Halligan told students about Ryan’s experience with bullying — how Ryan was picked on, had rumors started about him and had a girl fake romantic feelings for him the summer before he died. The story has been shared on national television in interviews with Diane Sawyer and Oprah Winfrey.
But bullying was not the only factor that led to Ryan’s death, Halligan said.
“I believe, in the end, my son died of an illness — an illness called depression; an illness that for Ryan’s sake tragically went undetected and untreated; an illness that I believe came about from a bunch of these bullying events that started way back in the fifth grade,” Halligan said.
In her first year as a counselor at Penn Middle, Schrinel has seen more students diagnosed with anxiety or depression than she saw over the past six years as a teacher in another district. Students and parents often report instances of bullying that happened over social media or messaging platforms, she said.
“Especially when it comes to Snapchat and TikTok, kids tend to say whatever they feel that they can,” Schrinel said, “and those are definitely not things that they would say in person, so it gives them that anonymity in a way.”
She hopes Halligan’s presentation changes the way students think about the messages they send online.
“Seeing how it would affect a family brings home that even though you are saying what you want, it’s affecting other people and it’s not just that single child,” Schrinel said.
Increase in reports
The Safe2Say Something helpline cost nearly $2 million last fiscal year. It is run by the Office of the Attorney General and Sandy Hook Promise, a nonprofit that seeks to create safe schools and communities through intervention programs. Sandy Hook Promise was created in response to the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in which 20 students and six staff members died.
Reports can be submitted to Safe2Say Something online, via the mobile app or by calling 1-844-723-2729. The helpline’s crisis center staff, based in Harrisburg, assesses each report.
The reports are sent to the school district’s administrative officials, Kline said, but reports that have an immediate impact on student safety are also sent to relevant emergency personnel.
“Now more than ever, young people need an outlet to report concerns, and that correlates with the number of reports coming into Safe2Say channels,” state Attorney General Michelle Henry said via email. “More students are using this tool than ever before, and they are talking about a range of different concerns and issues.”
Westmoreland County saw 1,600 reports last school year, the eighth highest number of reports in the helpline’s system. Vaping and tobacco use reports were most common, but more pressing for school districts were the 240 reports of bullying, 120 reports of self-harm and 110 reports of suicide concerns.
Allegheny County saw the highest number of reports last school year, coming in at nearly 2,500. Bullying accounted for the most reports at 430. Concerns of suicide resulted in 163 reports and self-harm generated 160.
Superintendent Chris Sefcheck said most of the Safe2Say Something reports received by the New Kensington-Arnold School District relate to potential fights and the social and emotional well-being of students.
Assistant Superintendent Jason Lohr said Kiski Area School District may go five days without a tip or receive four first thing in the morning. The middle and high schools receive the most tips, often surrounding tobacco or vape use, he said.
But students take seriously that the district investigates each report it receives, Lohr said.
“That gives us confidence that if they have that belief in the system, if there is something significant … students will actually report that and give us an opportunity to respond,” he said.
‘Ask for help’
As Halligan addressed Penn Middle, he urged students to stand up against bullying when they see it happening and to seek help if the situation is beyond their control.
“I beg you to ask for help. Don’t be embarrassed. Don’t be ashamed,” he said. “You’re not the only person feeling this way. You’re not alone.”
Simpson said he hopes Halligan’s words “derail” bullying — encouraging students to stand up for those who are being mistreated and to seek help from a trusted adult if they themselves are struggling.
“Call us and talk to us,” Simpson said. “Maybe it’s a small thing, but that small thing, like with this boy Ryan, if someone had done some small interventions, maybe that tragedy doesn’t happen.”

Handle With Care The Handle With Care program also addresses students' well-being. Handle With Care is run by the Allegheny Intermediate Unit's Highlands Family Center through funding from the Richard King Mellon Foundation, said Melanie Jones, public information officer for Westmoreland District Attorney Nicole Ziccarelli. The program allows law enforcement and emergency personnel to communicate with school districts about students exposed to traumatic events. If a student's family lost their home to a fire, for example, emergency responders could connect with the school about how to support the student. The Highlands School District in Allegheny County has used Handle With Care since 2021 . It was piloted at New Kensington-Arnold School District in October 2022 following the death of a 9-year-old New Kensington boy , who prosecutors said was killed by his father. Jones said the program hopes to expand to two more school districts by the end of the academic year. Handle With Care and Safe2Say Something help New Kensington-Arnold address student well-being, Superintendent Chris Sefcheck said. "Between the two (programs), we try to be as proactive as possible to mitigate anything or proactively take steps to ensure that something doesn't happen," Sefcheck said.
