Today, HHS launches a new website called Stopbullying.gov. The site provides information from government agencies on how kids, teens, young adults, parents, educators, and others in the community can prevent or stop bullying. It also provides information on finding help if you, or someone you know, is being bullied.
In October 2010, we posted twice on the subject of bullying and teen suicide: HHS Secretary Addresses Bullying and Teen Suicide and The HHS Office of HIV/AIDS Policy on Bullying and Teen Suicide. As we noted in those earlier posts, for the HIV community, the issues of bullying and suicide and their effects on young people’s well-being and risk behaviors are critically important.
Help us save lives and protect health by visiting Stopbullying.gov and learning more.
