Mental Health and Bullying – The Impact




One in four people experience a mental health problem. While not all are a result of bullying behavior, simply having a mental health problem can lead to a person being bullied. We need to be more aware of the damage bullying behavior causes. We need to speak out when we see it happening. We need to do this because it saves lives.

About the Speaker

Linda, a mother of three sons, founded BulliesOut in 2006, spurred by a determination that children’s lives would not be scarred by bullying as hers had been. Since then, Linda has grown BulliesOut from a web-based support service to a charity providing a comprehensive program of workshops and training programs for schools and workplaces.
