The largest study of bullying prevention efforts in U.S. schools has revealed significant, sustained positive impacts from the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program. Researchers at Clemson University and the University of Bergen in Norway evaluated nearly 70,000 students across 210 elementary, middle and high schools in Pennsylvania over two years. A companion analysis assessed year-to-year changes in a subset of 95 schools over three years. The research documented clear reductions in student reports of being bullied and bullying others.

When a celebrity like Kate Spade or Anthony Bourdain dies from suicide there’s often a call for more research. But what does that research look like? Suicide, the 10th leading cause of death in the United States, is difficult to study. Unlike the first nine causes, it doesn’t fit neatly into a single disease category, like heart disease (No.1), cancer (No. 2) or diabetes (No. 7).
