The vision behind Bullying Awareness Week:
Bullying Awareness Week is about working at preventing bullying through education and awareness
Bullying Awareness Week is NOT about what others could or should be doing, but rather what WE can do!
Bullying is a community issue. Schools are a critically important part of the solution, but bullying should not be defined solely as a “school problem”.
Addressing bullying is best done with a holistic, community approach because bullying is a community health and wellness issue.
Everyone can play a role in addressing bullying in their community.
Bullying also needs to be understood as a health issue. The impact of bullying on personal health and wellness can last a lifetime. This also financial implications for our society with lessened productivity, lost man-hours due to illness or personal days off work.
