Do you feel safe at school? Schools should be a safe place where you can learn, grow, and have fun. Yet bullying is a common problem that happens in schools all across the world. Being bullied can make you feel alone and scared. It is a tough situation to go through, and it can affect your self-esteem and increase your risk of developing mental health issues. So what can be done to reduce bullying in schools?

Many schools run anti-bullying programs. We wanted to find out how effective these interventions are and what impact they have on students. We found that anti-bullying interventions not only reduce bullying but also improve mental health problems! Our results show that interventions help in a very important way to reduce bullying and its negative consequences.
