Say no to bullying

October 10 was World Mental Health Day. We welcomed M. Sébastien Cao today who gave a presentation on harassment to our middle school students in Qingpu and Yangpu.

What is school harassment?

The definition of school harassment is characterised by three main points, following French penal code:

  • Repetition of negative actions over a certain period of time
  • Group phenomenon leading to an unbalance between the isolated person and the group
  • Incapacity for the target to defend him/herself

The objective of this presentation was to highlight the importance of not staying silent when facing a situation of harassment, and the change everyone can make by creating an inclusive environment for all.
