Rising violence and threats in US schools are impacting many students’ mental health, according to a report by the Daily Journal newspaper. The Safe2Say Something Programme, a youth violence prevention programme run by the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General, received 10 495 anonymous tips about such incidents as bullying and school threats for the 2020-2021 school year, said the report. The tips include 900 pieces regarding hate crime, discrimination, harassment or intimidation, it noted, adding that ‘despite the numerous assemblies and counselling services provided in schools, many people do not receive the help they need.’
