Over thirty percent of children in Portugal are bullied in our schools.
The impacts of bullying are often painful and costly:
- It can cause its targets physical harm and leave mental health effects, including depression, anxiety, eating disorders, shame and suicide.
- Students who bully are at increased risk of school absenteeism, drug abuse and criminality.
- Creates an unsafe and insecure learning environment
- Diverse youth are marginalized
- Staff time is wasted
- Suspensions and expulsions lose revenue
- Parents remove their child from your school (more lost revenue)
- Your school can be sued for harassment
The 2009 survey sponsored the World Health Organization (WHO) of health-related attitudes and behaviors of young people (known as Health Behavior in School-Aged Children or HBSC) found that the percentage of adolescents in Portugal aged 11 to 15 years who report bullying others at school at least once in the past couple of months is over 30 per cent.
WITH YOUR LEADERSHIP YOU CAN BRING BULLYING TO AN END
Increasingly schools are recognizing the need for an effective anti-bullying system to prevent the harm caused to student lives. Under the No Bully System schools are stopping over 90% of incidents of bullying and building a culture where everyone belongs.

Contact us for a proposal that describes how No Bully Portugal can help your school end bullying and details the applicable partnership fee. Most schools find that a one-year partnership with No Bully Portugal soon pays for itself through attracting new enrollment and retaining students, that they would otherwise have lost because of bullying.
How We Do It
