Standing by: The Bullying Helpline

The Bullying Help Line is a resource for youth and their families, educators and people throughout our community. This support service, operated by Crisis Intervention Service, can be reached 24 hours a day, every day, by calling (641) 424-9071 or 1-800-479-9071.
Calls are confidential and will be answered from across the North Central Iowa area.
The Help Line provides individual counseling for victims of bullying and their friends and family. It also can provide information about the laws and policies school districts and law enforcement agencies are required to follow. Help Line staff can walk callers through the reporting process and provide information about how to document actions taken. The Help Line can also provide information about other community resources and state contacts.
Help Line staff members assist family and friends of perpetrators as well as victims.
The Bullying Help Line is a project of the Mason City Youth Task Force Safe Places Promise Team and is supported by a Safe and Drug Free Schools and Communities Grant to the Youth Task Force from the Iowa Department of Public Health.
