Mediation Center Staff Trained in Bullying Prevention
Ending Bullying, Saving Lives: The Time is Now
by Jody Miller, Executive Director, Mediation Center of Dutchess County
There have been three child and teen suicides due to bullying since September. 15 year old Felicia Garcia threw herself off of a train platform in Staten Island. 15 year old Amanda Todd made a video that silently told her story as she held up index cards, one by one, describing her desperation before she took her life. 10 year old Jasmine McClain hung herself after being teased about her clothes and her shoes.
