In honor of Mental Health Awareness month, StopBullying.gov invites you to join a Twitter Chat on Mental Health and Bullying, May 20, at 2:00 p.m. ET with partners the American Public Health Association, ACEs Connection, and the National Federation for Children's Mental Health. Bullying negatively affects the mental health of all those involved: kids who have bullied; kids who bully others; and kids who witness bullying. The Twitter Chat will explore:
- The intersection between mental health and bullying;
- How to recognize mental health issues;
- How to recognize the effects of bullying;
- How to help children and youth who have experienced bullying;
- How to prevent bullying; and
- Resources and treatment options for children’s mental health.
StopBullying.gov has resources for parents and caregivers on cyberbullying and bullying. Learn about the importance of establishing rules for digital use and behavior; tips to help your children deal with “haters”; and videos you can watch with younger children to teach them about how to handle bullying. Use #MHBullying to join the chat.
