National Stop bullying Day takes place on the second Wednesday of October.

The day helps to promote putting an end to bullying and standing up to bullies.

Bullying affects all youth, including those who are bullied, those who bully others, and those who witness bullying. The effects of bullying may continue into adulthood.

Bullying, like everything else, doesn't always look the same.

Here are four different types of bullying to look out for:

  • Physical- This form of bullying can look like hitting, kicking, unwanted touching, ETC.
  • Verbal- This form of bullying isn't visible, but it can be heard. Examples include name calling, disrespectful language, threats, ETC.
  • Cyber- This form of bullying happens over the internet or messaging apps. This can include spreading rumors, lies, or nasty messages, ETC. via the internet.
  • Relational- This form of bullying is excluding people on purpose.

The U.S. Department of Human Services has a 24/7 hotline to stop bullying: 1-800-273-8255.

National Stop Bullying Month and National Stop Bullying Week also take place in October. The Stop Bullying campaign was created by 18 sixth graders at St. Stanislaus Kostka in 2009
