    Parents and caregivers who spend at least 15 minutes a day talking with their child can build the foundation for a strong relationship, and help prevent bullying. KnowBullying, a new mobile app by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), encourages dialogue between you and your children and helps you start a conversation.

    KnowBullying by SAMHSA includes:

    • Conversation Starters: Start a meaningful discussion with your child.
    • Tips: Learn ways to prevent bullying.
    • Warning Signs: Know if your child is affected by bullying.
    • Reminders: Find the right time to connect with your child.
    • Social Media: Share tactics and useful advice.
    • Section for Educators: Prevent bullying in the classroom.

    The KnowBullying app is available for Android™ and iPhone®. It is a free resource for mobile devices provided by SAMHSA, in conjunction with the StopBullying.gov Federal partnership.
