Anti-bullying Superheroes

by Marlene Seltzer, M.D., medical director of Beaumont Children’s Hospital’s No Bullying, Live Empowered (NoBLE) program

To raise bullying awareness during National Bullying Prevention Month, I worked with Beaumont Children’s Hospital child life specialists to host a special design contest for pediatric patients. The participants were instructed to design their very own anti-bullying superhero. Below are just a few of the great submissions we received. It was so inspiring and encouraging to see that a majority of these newly created superheroes were using their words rather than force to defeat their bullies.

We used this contest as a way to reinforce to these young individuals that no one ever deserves to be bullied and there is always somewhere to turn for help.
