MONTREAL, Nov. 20, 2013 / CNW Telbec / - For the first time, the Jasmin Roy Foundation highlights the international day of children's rights and launches a new awareness campaign denouncing the negative consequences of bullying on young people.

The former prime minister Lucien Bouchard, the conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin, the American actor Jay baruchel, Alexandre Bilodeau, Gino Chouinard, Yan England, Frédérique Dufort, Roxane Gaudette-Loiseau, Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge, Maxime Tremblay, Chéli Sauvé-Castonguay, Joey Scarpellino, Lynda Thalie, Olivier Dion, Marie-Soleil Dion, Jérôme Charlebois and Ingrid Falaise have agreed to participate in this new web offensive in which they denounce bullying and the destructive effects on the mental health of young people. This project was done on the hit song by Lynda Thalie “Dance your pain away, La tête haute” which carries a message of resilience in which the singer talks about the importance of having faith in us.

We encourage the public, the media and schools to share these capsules on social networks in order to create a viral movement.

Jasmin Roy was bullied at school. Three years ago, he set up a foundation whose mission is to fight bullying, discrimination and violence against children in schools at the primary and secondary levels. The Foundation's goal is to ensure a healthy and safe environment for students by supporting and organizing various initiatives aimed at better intervention with victims and aggressors in schools.

Launch of a prevention tool on bullying in schools by the Théâtre Québécois of creative expression

MONTREAL, Nov. 20, 2013 / CNW Telbec / - As part of World Children's Day on November 20, 2013, the Théâtre Québécois of Creative Expression in collaboration with the Institut Québécois de sexologie clinique is launching a new prevention tool to fight bullying in schools.

Born from a reflection of two teenage girls, the video expresses the perceptions and realities of young people facing a major problem of misunderstanding and power that we find in our schools.

This new tool is now available for schools with the aim of creating activities through creative play and creating reflection among young people and their parents. The video is also available on YouTube at
