For some reason I never thought to do this before, but I just did a Google search to try to find support phone numbers or emails for bullying. I figured there had to be many groups or a U.S. Government sponsored hotline to help those in need of support for issues of bullying and school violence.
Well…I gave up after spending about 10 minutes trying to find a group in the United States that I could put here for you to call if need be. I’m not sure if I’m missing something, but I consider myself a power user when it comes to internet searches. I tried lots of keywords, but no site came up that gave me a phone number or email for support on bullying issues.
I hope that I am wrong and you know of one out there. If so, comment to this post and list it. The true shame is that I don’t believe there is a U.S. HOTLINE out there that deals specifically with bullying issues and has people to help you and others if needed. I would certainly like to see that happen and maybe I just missed it. I hope so.
What set me off on the search was a post that I had read from someone’s blog. It’s a new blog and you can read that post here. After reading that story, I thought for sure I’d find a hotline number I could offer for people. Well, I didn’t find it. Again, please list one if you know one. If no one knows of one, well maybe it’s time to try to get one started.
