Social Media Toolkit

Bullying Prevention

October is World Bullying Prevention Month. Did you know at least 1 out of every 5 kids in the United States is bullied? In Texas, at least 40% of those who are bullied have seriously considered suicide. The conversation to prevent bulling can start as early as a when a child learns the difference between kindness and unkindness.

To give caregivers the tools to empower their children to be anti-bullying champions and to get messaging out about bullying prevention, the PEI Communications Team created content designed to help caregivers have conversations with their children about bullying that can be posted on your organization’s websites or social media channels.

  • These messages and links can be used as is or they can be customized in any way that works best for your community. For example, if your agency has a hotline, you may consider replacing the Texas Youth Helpline with it. Or if your agency has a bullying prevention program, consider replacing the links to the Get Parenting Tips website with links to your program’s information.
  • There are some social media sample images included in this toolkit that you are free to share.
  • The National Bullying Prevention Center also has a library of images and messaging that are free for use.
