New Bullying Web Page from CDC

Monday, April 4, 2011, 2:43 pm

Bullying is a significant problem for all youth, but lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth are victims of bullying at rates higher than their heterosexual peers.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC's) Division of Adolescent and School Health has launched a web page on the topic of LGBTQ youth and bullying.  It includes advice and resources on how teachers and school administrators can prevent bullying in schools, and what parents can do to support their children.

The page can be found at:  http://www.cdc.gov/lgbthealth/youth.htm

If you have any questions about this new resource, please contact Terry Parker at (770) 477-6157.
