WSFA 12 NEWS DEFENDERS: Bullying Prevention Resources

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

More than 100 people called in to the WSFA 12 NEWS DEFENDERS Bullying Prevention Hotline Thursday.

It was one small way in which WSFA 12 News is trying to shine the spotlight on a problem that rears its head daily at schools across Alabama and the nation. All too often it pushes someone to a breaking point that can even lead to suicide.

While our hotline has closed, your access to professionals from valued partners like The Family Sunshine Center, Child Protect and others is still available.

We've added links and contact numbers below that can help you anytime here on WSFA.COM and on our mobile apps.

A bill that would have ended the religious exemption for such facilities failed to pass the legislature. That means close to half of child care centers in Alabama remain uninspected by state officials for basic health and safety standards.
