App Helps Prevent Bullying

KnowBullying, a free smartphone app created by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), provides parents, caretakers, educators, and others with information and communication support to help prevent bullying and build resilience in children. Research shows that as little as 15 minutes a day of focused conversation with a child about issues related to bullying can help build self-esteem and prevent bullying.

The KnowBullying app is available for iPhone® and Android™ smartphones. For more information about KnowBullying by SAMHSA, visit:
