Katie's solution - how to solve the problem
creation of a mandatory class in schools
learn psychological consequences
victim: depression, anxiety, loss of interest, mental health problems, etc.
bully: abusive of alcohol and drugs, peers, and romantic partners or children

When laws are not enforced and integrated into our daily lives, we most likely do not even know they exist!

assess bullying anonymously in school

Every school must have a law or policy

have all school staff educated on how to handle certain situations with bullying in case a student does not want to approach only the guidance office
