Live Panel Discussion
Tuesday, October 24, 2017
1:00 – 2:30 p.m. CDT
When it comes to bullying, cyber bullying and youth suicide, it can be hard to determine facts from fiction. This year alone, we have experienced: an intense media storm surrounding online TV series; newsfeeds full of stories about kids at risk to new cyber bullying threat encouraging suicide and kids dying by suicide at ever younger ages.
Along with the swirl of sensationalized headlines, we have also seen new reports that offer evidence-based guidance on the real correlation between cyber bullying, bullying and youth suicide. These reports highlight the need to establish a school culture that embraces and promotes primary prevention and social and emotional learning strategies from elementary school through high school.
To support your organization’s efforts to help keep kids safe, we are hosting a live panel discussion with three of today’s leading experts in the fields of bullying, cyber bullying and youth suicide:
