The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) recently released study results from the tracking of more than 10,000 Ontario students, and finds bullying in schools is on the decline.
Dr. Craig offers insights to the Globe and Mail as to the reasons behind the results. She credits increased awareness and proactive responses to bullying behaviour by students, parents and schools for the decrease in school bullying. Dr. Craig also suggests that provincially, Ontario's legislation is leading the way with its safe-school legislation.
The study also shows that rates of online and electronic bullying have not changed signficantly since 2011, when CAMH first began tracking cyberbullying. To read Dr. Craig's response to this particular finding, please see the full Globe and Mail articles here.
