As seen by those who live and work in the residential community

Research studies will be based on combining the answers provided by many people in many communities, and will not identify you or any community or individual.

However, if you wish to have us provide information or suggestions for your specific situation, identify yourself at the end of the questionnaire, and write with your question to support@StopBullyingCoalition.org
 
If you are doing this questionnaire for another person or to describe the situation of another person you have observed, then the "you" in the questions is for that person.
