Beaumont Health Systems and Common Ground have joined together to offer an anti-bullying program.
Beaumont Children's Hospital has announced the launch of Michigan's first hospital-based, anti-bullying program to raise awareness, provide supportive counseling and develop researched-based bullying programs.
Based at Beaumont Children's Hospital in Royal Oak the NO Bullying
Live Empowered, or NoBLE program, will offer victims, witnesses, perpetrators and their families and a bullying crisis hotline operated by Common Ground, a non-profit crisis intervention agency. It will serve as a resource and referral center for schools, health care providers and individual families throughout the community.
