Children's Hospital Intervention and Prevention Services take on Bullying

We’ve all read the articles, and we’ve seen the videos on youtube and other various media outlets, bullying is a huge issue among our school aged children. Approximately 160,000 students are absent from school each day nationwide due to fears of being bullied. The impact can be devastating on a child’s self esteem, academic performance and overall health.

This 9 week series will meet weekly from 3:45pm to 5:15pm at the CHIPS center located at 1600 5th Avenue South, beginning on April 13th.
