BELFAST, Northern Ireland, Sept. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- NoBullying.com is currently celebrating its 3rd year of providing quality online content with the aim of helping children, teens, and adults face the threat of bullying and overcome it. With content targeted at bullying victims, perpetrators, onlookers, parents, and teachers, the Website has been able to cover a wide array of subjects over time.
Bullying and Cyberbullying impact everyone, from young children all the way through to working adults. More than 16,000 children miss school every day in the USA due to bullying. Almost 50% of young people have bullied another person and the effects of such acts are known to leave deep psychological scars for life. Adults face bullying too - surveys have found that 35% of workers have been victims of workplace bullying.
Prevention programs are known to decrease bullying in schools by up to 25%, which is why NoBullying.com has dedicated specific categories for parents and teachers who are looking for resources on bullying and its causes as well as how to combat it.
Among the most important topics NoBullying.com tackles is the issue of Cyber Bullying and its effects. It is estimated that approximately 42% of youth report being bullied online. When considering that cyber bullying victims often have low self-esteem and are likely to consider suicide, these rates become worrisome.
NoBullying.com also takes great interest in addressing mental health issues that bullying victims might face, providing articles on the connection between depression and bullying, getting the necessary bullying help, as well as how to deal with suicide attempts.
While a great deal of bullying does occur in student environments, workplace bullying is also a sensitive issue that requires an additional amount of attention. It is estimated that 35 per cent of workers in the USA reported being bullied at work, making it essential for the issue to be brought to light.
The Website also prepares an annual report on the global status of bullying, with its most recent report addressing The Complicated Web of Teen Lives.
NoBullying.com has had over 15 million visits since its inception, with traffic reaching its peak with the beginning of the school year in September and October, and then again in March and April. Traffic to the Website has increased year over year, leading to the belief that while there is more awareness about the subject, more people are trying to reach out for the right help and resources.
Ciaran Connolly, CEO of Treze / NoBullying.com further elaborates, "We look forward to helping more parents, teens, and schools in dealing with the issue of bullying. We have seen no reduction in the problem - as the number of people visiting the website shows, but there is more awareness of the issues globally. Yet it appears that further measures need to be taken to solve this everyday problem."
