Bullying is an all-too-common issue at schools throughout Georgia. At Fayetteville's Bennett's Mill Middle School, school officials, parents and students have banded together to stop bullying and improve the school climate. The school provides all stakeholders with valuable information, including how to diffuse negative situations in a healthy and positive manner. Parents learn how to recognize the warning signs of bullying, as well as how to report incidents to the proper school officials. By taking a proactive approach, the school is able to make learning a positive experience for everyone.4

Current Initiatives

Faith Works is an interdenominational religious organization that seeks to bring peoples of various faiths together in order to meet the mental health needs of Georgia's residents. As part of their NAMI Faith Outreach Initiative, the organization provides research-based materials to clergy members, who can then provide more informed support services to the people of their churches. Additionally, Faith Works acts as a central resource for members of the faith-based community who seek to find support and assistance in times of poor mental health. Since the initiative began in 2010, thousands of people have been able to find the assistance they need. 5
