About Be Strong
Be Strong is a nonprofit organization designed to Save Lives + End Bullying among students in America. Bullying has become a pervasive and unwelcome reality among our youth today, and not just in our children’s schools but in the online world as well.
Saving lives and ending bullying is our mission.Creating awareness for students and parents who identify themselves as needing help after hearing anti-bullying messages is our step one.To that end, we are developing a number of tools that form the Be Strong Digital Bridge, a set of digital tools that connects people of all ages with one-touch resources such as a lifelines, crisis text line, and trusted friends alert, a Smartphone App, an information portal, increased access to social resources as well as a growing team of volunteers prepared to spread the message of help and understanding to young people in need.
Depression, anxiety, and many other psychological problems, including fear, can result from school violence. What do we know about the relationship between students and mental illness? Training teachers and other school officials and qualified community volunteers to recognize signs that a student might need special attention or help.
Not all injuries are visible. Exposure to youth violence and school violence can lead to a wide array of negative health behaviors and outcomes, including alcohol and drug use, self harm and suicide.Through raising awareness, Be Strong strives to shine a light on these challenges, enhance knowledge about solutions and aggregate professional service providers to be available 24/7 on and off line.
