Bullying is repeated mean, cruel, hurtful behaviours done on purpose by someone with more power. It can be verbal, physical, social and online. Recognize the warning signs.

Overview

Bullying Awareness Week (November 16 to 20, 2020) is the third week in November.

It is a time to promote awareness and understanding of bullying and its impacts.

Get involved

Bullying is a relationship problem that involves a power imbalance, which is why it can be so challenging to overcome it by ourselves. Regardless of where bullying happens – in school, the office, at home or in the community – there are people and resources that can help. This year’s theme, #WhereToTurn, encourages everyone to learn where to turn when dealing with bullying.

Here are a few ways you can take part in Bullying Awareness Week:

  • share bullying prevention resources on social media
    • the Bullying Helpline (1-888-456-2323) is available 24/7 in over 170 languages
  • start a discussion with your friends, family or coworkers about how to intervene
  • write a letter or email to the editor of your local newspaper or radio station about the importance of promoting healthy relationships
