Solutions require widespread, sustained efforts in families, schools, and communities. Check out STRYVE - Striving To Reduce Youth Violence Everywhere - a public health approach to violence prevention. STRYVE is a national initiative led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Then visit StopBullying.gov, a one-stop access to U. S. Government information on bullying topics.
