Victims of Crime

Join the International Bullying Prevention Association (IBPA) for the webinar “Student Mental Health and Wellness” on Thursday, December 1 from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. ET. Research shows that meeting mental health needs in the classroom and at a schoolwide level can help address other problems related to truancy, behavior problems, substance abuse, school violence, and other issues.

Student Mental Health and Wellness (Dec 2016)

Mental health is important and plays a role in our daily lives. It refers to a person’s emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how a person thinks, feels, and acts.

Mental health problems can develop in children and youth at any age. Studies show that 20 percent of students in kindergarten through twelfth grade suffer from a mental health issue on any given day in any given classroom; and 10 percent of these issues are serious enough to affect how that student behaves at home, at school, and with others.

Taking a Trauma-Informed Approach While Improving Community Safety (Nov 2016)

The stress of living in a high-crime, high-violence environment has been shown to negatively impact physical and mental health in the short- and long-term. Children and families look over their shoulders in fear of being at the wrong place at the right time. Neighborhoods suffering from years of disinvestment have resulted in disconnected communities with poor institutional relationships.

The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) National Training and Technical Assistance Center (NTTAC) has developed a new resource for BJA TTA providers, “How to Post a Webinar Recording: A BJA NTTAC Tip Sheet.” This resource provides guidance and best practices on how to capture and post a WebEx recording after a virtual meeting, presentation, or training.

The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) recently released its State and Territory Fact Sheets for fiscal year (FY) 2014. The fact sheets are updated annually and summarize funding provided by BJA during FY 2014 across all jurisdictions in a particular state or territory. Additionally, the fact sheets provide state- or territory-specific statistics on justice personnel and crime/arrest data during the fiscal year.
