WILMINGTON, Del. (CBS) – October is National Bullying Prevention Month, and Delaware is launching a new initiative to coincide with it.

DEleteBullying.org, a new online resource that focuses on bullying-prevention, was launched by Governor Markell and the Delaware Bar Foundation.

“Bullying is a significant and serious problem for far too many of our students,” said Governor Markell. “An online resource will give young people and adults the knowledge and tools they need to cope with situations that occur and help prevent bullying from taking place to begin with.”

The website will have information for parents, children and teachers on how to address and prevent instances of bullying, how bullying is defined in Delaware and signs of bullying. The homepage of the website will show a video produced by The Morris Project and featuring students from Howard High School of Technology that shows what bullying can look like, how it feels to be the target of bullying and how teens can react to it.
