The Western Australian Centre for Health Promotion Research (WACHPR) at Curtin University has been investigating the prevalence, type and characteristics of bullying incidents in Western Australian primary schools since 1999, culminating in the design and implementation of two, 3-year bullying interventions designed to reduce reported bullying. This presentation will discuss the WACHPR's bullying intervention trials and successful strategies and their implication for the long-term mental, social and physical health of Western Australia's children.
