According to the CDC, nearly a quarter of all NY students experience ongoing bullying. Low socioeconomic status is the main predictor of whether young teens in wealthy countries will experience bullying in school. School bullying, on campus and online, greatly impacts a kids’ mental health and well-being.
Studies have shown that victims of childhood bullying are at risk of poorer outcomes in adulthood, not only for psychological health, but also physical health, cognitive functioning and quality of life.
Nearly 100% of Family Center clients are impacted by social, economic, and mental health issues. Our Irene LeeKong Institute and Brooklyn ACTS programs specialize in children and teen trauma, including that inflicted by school bullying.
