The Children's Safety Network is hosting a series of webinars on the issue of bullying awareness, response, and prevention based on the "Building Capacity to Reduce Bullying and Its Impact on Youth across the Lifecourse" workshop convened by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) and National Research Council (NRC) in April 2014. 

The first webinar in the series is entitled "The Connections between Bullying and Family Violence, Sexual Harassment, and Dating Violence" and explores the widespread public health concerns of youth aggression and bullying, sexual harassment, and dating violence. 

The second webinar explores the relation between being bullied and subsequent mental and physical health problems, such as depression and poorer immune function. 

The series aims to raise awareness, but also calls for a collaborative and concerted effort to end bullying.
