Activist and author Dan Savage started the movement when he and his partner wanted to help LGBT teens being bullied at school. Everyone from President Barack Obama to Joe Jonas and Kesha have made videos, speaking about their struggles with not always fitting in and how things really did get better for them. The inspirational videos will remind you that you aren't alone.
It was started in 2009 by college students Lauren Parsekian and Molly Thompson, who were both affected by bullying from other girls. They created a documentary and non-profit org to stop what they call "girl on girl crime." Join the online forum, where you can share your personal story, apologize to someone you might have hurt, and pledge to end female bullying.
Bullying can potentially be a prominent risk factor for substance abuse and mental health issues in students, if not addressed properly. Ridgefield Recovery Village has created a Bullying & Substance Abuse guide, addressing the intersection of the two topics.
