Bullying Prevention Resource Center

Are you being bullied?

The Bullying Prevention Resource Center is here to help.

The Bullying Prevention Resource Center (BPRC) is available to all residents of Bucks County to report, refer, and/or resolve bullying in their community. Our experienced team assists individuals, families, schools, and workplaces with challenges related to bullying.

Founded in collaboration with the Bucks County District Attorney’s office and County Commissioners, the BPRC offers support and guidance to local school districts, law enforcement, and those involved in bullying-related incidents.

We are not a crisis service.
If you or someone you know is experiencing a mental health emergency, please call 988.

If you are experiencing another life emergency or challenge, please review the Bucks County HUB resource page for additional hotlines or assistance.

What is Bullying?

Unwanted, aggressive behavior that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or will continue without intervention. Bullying appears in many forms and are categorized as verbal, social, physical.

  • Verbal Bullying is saying or writing mean things (ex: Teasing, Name-Calling, Inappropriate comments, Taunting, Threatening)
  • Social Bullying, or Relational Bullying, involves targeting someone’s reputation and/or relationships. (ex: Leaving someone out on purpose, Telling others not to be friends with someone, Spreading rumors about someone, Embarrassing someone in public)
  • Physical Bullying involves hurting a person’s body or belongings (Hitting/Kicking/Pinching, Spitting, Tripping/pushing, Taking or breaking another’s possessions, Making mean gestures)
  • Cyber Bullying differs from in-person bullying by being persistent, permanent, and less obvious to parents and teachers.

While bullying can happen anywhere, the form it takes will depend on the setting. A significant amount of bullying now occurs online, continuing and furthering conflict outside the school or workplace.
