Five Marin County schools will have the opportunity to partner with No Bully in the 2013-2014 school year through funding provided by the CCSESA Regional K-12 Student Mental Health Initiative (SMHI) to the Marin County Office of Education. One of the goals of this statewide initiative is to build the capacity of schools and communities to implement prevention and early identification strategies that promote student mental health. The regional plan for the SMHI contract has a specific focus on bullying prevention.
Imagine schools worldwide becoming signatories to a charter of compassion. Each school retains its individuality but all share in the commitment to step beyond individualism and to foster a new generation who care for others and the planet as much as themselves.

The General Theory of Love tells of a monkey that underwent a limbic lobotomy, and so lost access to the part of his brain that governs social interactions.
