Alongside communities across the country, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is promoting Bullying Prevention Awareness Month. This important observance is held every October.
In 2004, HRSA launched the first Federal anti-bullying campaign to raise awareness about this very serious issue. Ten years later the extent and impact of bullying, particularly on children, continues to be a concern in communities across the country.  HHS data underscore the extent of this problem.  Nationwide, 20% of students in grades 9-12 for example, report they have experienced bullying.  Just as communities are moving from awareness to action to address this problem, the federal government is too.  In fact, three federal agencies, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Education, and the Department of Justice are actively engaged in efforts to prevent bullying.
