The details

No Labels: a bullying prevention program

MIEACTs No Labels program explores bullying from a person-centred approach with a focus on the effects of bullying behaviour on individuals and their well-being. Students are given the opportunity to discuss various types of bullying in their environment and are introduced to strategies to manage their wellbeing. This is an interactive session delivered by a qualified educator with educational content and wellbeing strategies that are evidence-informed.

By the end of this session participants will:

  • understand the different forms that bullying can take;
  • understand the three common roles in bullying incidents (the one experiencing, the one displaying and the one witnessing bullying);
  • understand the impacts of bullying on each the three players;
  • identify strategies for managing the impacts of bullying behaviour;
  • identify strategies for improving their own mental health and wellbeing;
  • know how to appropriately respond to uncomfortable situations.
