CSN Bullying Prevention Resource Guide

Bullying is a serious public health problem. Victimized youth are at increased risk for depression, anxiety, substance misuse, sleep difficulties, and poor school adjustment. Youth who bully others are at increased risk for substance use, academic problems, and violence later in adolescence and adulthood. This guide provides links to a multitude of bullying prevention resources available to you.

Child Safety Learning Collaborative

 

CSLC State Map

The Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB), in cooperation with the Children’s Safety Network, is launching the second cohort of a new Child Safety Learning Collaborative for state and jurisdiction Title V agencies. The aim of the Learning Collaborative is to reduce fatal and serious injuries among infants, children, and adolescents. The second cohort began in May 2020 and continues for 18 months to October 2021.  We will begin soliciting for Cohort 3 in the summer of 2021, so stay tuned!

The Learning Collaborative focuses on five topic areas: Bullying Prevention, Motor Vehicle Traffic Safety (includes child passenger safety and teen driver/passenger safety), Poisoning Prevention (includes the prevention of prescription medication misuse/abuse), Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID) Prevention, and Suicide and Self-Harm Prevention.
