“In today’s dynamic and frenzied world, children and adults suffer from bullying in many ways, be it in person or online,” said Senator Hwang. “And in a time where we are expanding our understanding of mental health and brain development, informational forums like these, where we can educate children and parents about some of the serious concerns they may have, are crucial to ensuring the safety, security, and self-esteem of those in our community and especially our young people.”
