Youth violence refers to harmful behaviors that can start early and continue into young adulthood. The young person can be a victim, an offender, or a witness to the violence. Youth violence includes various behaviors. Some violent acts—such as bullying, slapping, or hitting—can cause more emotional harm than physical harm. Others, such as robbery and assault (with or without weapons) can lead to serious injury or even death

Bullying at school is a pervasive problem that affects millions of students every year.

Because bullying is so commonplace and ranges so widely in severity, its importance is often overlooked.
