Bullying is a problem that can impact perpetrators, victims, and bystanders in terms of their mental illness and mental wellness. In this chapter, the authors first define bullying and summarize its impact. The emphasis of the chapter is on universal and targeted prevention of bullying in schools following a public health framework. The authors provide evidence for the effectiveness of bullying prevention programs and policies, as well as universal and targeted prevention approaches to teach and reinforce positive behavior and social-emotional skills. Targeted approaches for perpetrators and victims of bullying are described. These concepts are illustrated in a case study of a school district’s comprehensive approach to bullying prevention and intervention. The chapter concludes with a table of recommendations for practice.
