In the aftermath of several teens across the country taking their own lives because of the intense bullying, celebrities like Chris Colfer and Shay Mitchell are stepping forward to speak out about their own experiences with being teased at school and calling for everyone to do their part to make this frightening epidemic stop.
"I think we live in this world where there is a lot of hate," Joe Jonas says in a new video for Cambio Cares. "To see that there's hate even in our own countries is really sad. The fact that people resort to bullying is horrible."
So, how does it stop?
"We've got to start somewhere. It starts in yourself and then it starts in your school, and it starts in your community," the 21-year-old states. "Being able to reach out to those people that are sitting at the cafeteria by themselves or they don't have many friends. You should sit with them. You should talk to them. Get to know them because they're just like you. Everybody has insecurities. Everybody has fears."
