Monthly Health Topic

March is Violence and Bullying Prevention Month

The second leading cause of death among teenagers ages 15-19 is homicide. Homicide can be linked to the prescence of violence in the forms of phsyical assault, verbal abuse and emotional manipulation. The teen may be the victim, the perpetrator or both. There are numerous risk factors which may increase the risk for a teen to engage in violence including:

  • Emotional distress due to prior trauma
  • Lack of family structure or support
  • Exposure to violence in the home or in school

The media has a quick tendency to assign youth violence involvement in gangs, use of firearms and armed robberies - but violence is much broader than that and extends beyond physical violence. Most comonly and often not considered violence, is the act of bullying. This month at Teen Health Connection, our prevention efforts will highlight the issues of violence and bullying. We encourage you to join us as we talk about the reduction of violence through increased healthy conflict resolution and ways to stop and stand up to bullying.
