The news has been filled with unsettling accounts of teen bullying lately, which has prompted Hollywood to take action in more ways than one. In a new video, stars such as Ian Somerhalder, Katerina Graham, Candice Accola, Shay Mitchell, Anne Hathaway and more have banded together to raise awareness for the The Trevor Project.

The video starts out with all the celebs saying the tag line: "It gets better." They go one to urge that even in the darkest times, there's always hope through The Trevor Project, "A confidential, toll-free 24-hour suicide hotline for gay and questioning youth," Shay explains.
The Trevor Project is an organization that is focused on providing crisis and suicide prevention efforts for gay teens. In addition to the hotline, they offer a variety of online resources, including a chat option if you want to talk to someone over the computer.

On September 22, 18-year-old Rutgers student Tyler Clementi committed suicide after his roommate broadcast an online video of him having sex with another guy. The story devastated Ellen Degeneres so much that she made a tearful statement about the incident, as well as bullying in general. Since then, there have been a slew of high-profile efforts to bring awareness to the issue. Watch the full Trevor Project video below. What else do you think should be done to stop teen bullying?
