F1. Bullying and Suicide: A Better Understanding

Speaker
Nancy Buyle, School Safety/Student Assistance Consultant, Macomb Intermediate School District


Description
Too many times we hear “he was bullied to death” or “bullying caused her suicide”. Learn about the complex relationship between bullying and suicidal behavior. This session will focus on research that has been done to help us understand that bullying is a risk factor for suicide, it does not cause it. Learn about circumstances and outcomes to make better decisions about what actions to take to prevent bullying and behaviors related to suicide.
