The recent wave of teen suicides across the nation has once again drawn attention to student bullying around gender and sexuality issues, and the growth of social media and the internet means that students face more than just dirty looks and notes being passed in class—they can be harassed and intimidated 24/7. Hear from Jaime Bishop, Mental Health Services Coordinator at the LGBT Community Center of Greater Cleveland, to learn more about the issues confronting teens today, get resources for creating a safe classroom and hear how you can protect everyone at your school from emotional and physical abuse.
