Get help with bullying and teen mental health


SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) – The Bay Area is a place with a rich history of diversity, openness and acceptance. Each of us has the power to continue this legacy by passing it on to the young people we love and care for. That’s why ABC7 encourages everyone to “Choose Kindness” where you live, no matter what your age.

Let’s lead by example and show young people that there is zero tolerance for bullying in the Bay Area. Let’s teach children to respect others, no matter what they look like or where they come from.

We know this isn’t always an easy task, so we’ve put together some resources at the end of this article to help you.

We also know that so much can change when people share what they’ve been through. So we reached out to some of our good friends and neighbors to share their stories and offer ideas on how to make things better. We all have the power to stop bullying, but none of us can do it alone. Remember to support each other and always “Choose Kindness”.

Bullying can harm teen mental health. If you or your loved ones are struggling with suicidal thoughts or mental health issues, click here for some organizations that offer help and hope.

This list will continue to grow, so if you know of a resource we’ve missed, scroll to the bottom of this page to make a suggestion.
