Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week

Ontario has designated the week of November 17- 23, 2013 as Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week to help promote safe schools and a positive learning environment.

During the week Ontario students, school staff and parents are encouraged to learn more about bullying and its effect on student learning and well-being.

Carol Todd, mother of Amanda Todd and founder of the Amanda Todd Legacy Society has spent the past year raising awareness of bullying and mental health following the tragic loss of her 15-year old daughter Amanda in October 2012, after years of cyber bullying.  Carol is urging parents to become social media-savvy with the hope of preventing similar tragedies.

It was a message Carol Todd brought to London, Ontario on November 7, 2013 when she spoke at the ‘Understanding the Links to Students’ Mental Health and Well-being’ conference sponsored by CAMH and Western University, which addressed social media, bullying, sexual violence, and prevention strategies for parents and schools.
