Bullying and Health

The Research Exchange Group on Bullying and Health was founded in September 2013. The group comprises researchers, faculty, educators, students, practitioners, and policy makers who gather monthly to discuss applied health research on issues related to bullying and health in Newfoundland and Labrador, whether focussed on the school system, the workplace, the post-secondary experience, health professional bullying or issues of leadership and restorative justice. 

The goals of this group are

  • to create research links;
  • to identify funding opportunities and research gaps;
  • to work towards developing greater overall capacity to conduct research on bullying and health; and
  • to promote evidence to inform decisions about public policy on bullying and health in Newfoundland and Labrador
