invites caregivers and educators to join our webinar…
 Youth Cyberbullying:
from understanding to prevention
April 8 from 2 – 2:45 pm
According to, approximately 44% of NYS students reported that they have experienced cyberbullying at some point in their lifetime. It is critical that schools, families and caregivers, and the youth understand what cyberbullying is, its impact on mental health, and how to help prevent it.

With recent school closures, youth are likely spending more time on-line. This webinar, developed for educators, families and caregivers, will provide an understanding of cyberbullying behaviors, including frequency and impact, as well as strategies and resources for prevention.
