A Global approach to combatting school bullying, teenage depression and youth suicide

Hi everyone,

I hope you will join us on November 16th 2012 at 15.00 hours/3pm (Europe/London time) to look at our ideas, initiatives and resources to tackle school bullying, youth depression and youth suicide. These issues have a significant impact on a young person’s academic development. If a young person does not feel safe and secure at school, they will be unable to learn and thrive.

Bullying peaks in middle school but starts as early as preschool. Research shows that the devastating effects of bullying are long term and far reaching, not just for the child who has been a target of bullying but for the bystanders and person who bullies as well. It can lead to low academic achievement, truancy, school exclusions (expulsion), depression and even suicide.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that approximately one million people die from suicide every year. Suicide is now among the three leading causes of death among those aged 15-44. We need to look at this on international level so that we can examine a range of global initiatives covering service provision, primary prevention, crisis intervention and research which spans knowledge worldwide.

Implementation and culture is the key. For example, simply stating that a school has an anti-bullying program is all very well, but there must be a committed, long term effort to continue a culture change and encourage awareness at all levels (from administration to students to all staff and parents). Personal development programmes and workshops can go a long way towards tackling bullying, but they need to be part of a wider programme which involves the whole community.

There is some excellent work being done to prevent bullying and to combat teenage depression and suicide. However the process, once started, must have no expiration date. Training should include administrators, teachers, parents, students, teaching assistants, admin staff, catering assistants, bus drivers and anyone who is in contact with children.

All Resources are developing a forum linked to our community programmes with the aim of building dialogue through a variety of different social media. Our aim is to use the forum to create online communities which spawn their own sets of hubs, micro-sites and international networks. We aspire to share tools, experiences, ideas and best practice through the use of strong, effective online communities. What works and what doesn't work? What initiatives are being used across the globe and how successful are they in combatting social problems among youths? Our objective is to kickstart the pooling of knowledge and resources in a global drive to combat youth bullying, depression and suicide.

Please join us on Novermber 16th at 15.00 hours/3pm (Europe/London time) to explore new ideas and initiatives.
