11 TV Hill: Comedian starts Lil' Laughs to address bullying
Maryland has seen a noticeable increase in school related violence this year. According to the Maryland Center for School Safety Tip Line, the state has seen a 167% increase in tips over the past year -- that's on top of a 46% increase in 2019. Most of the tips relate to bullying, assault and even COVID-19. And this is putting the spotlight on addressing the mental health of students. Throughout today's edition of 11 TV Hill, we'll talk with educators, school resource officers and even a comedian about how to best reach and connect with students. Bullying remains a big problem for many kids and young adults, and there's one man who is on a mission to raise awareness -- and even get some laughs. Big Fred Watkins, the founder of the Lil' Laughs anti-bullying campaign, explains what led him to start the program and how it helps students and adults alike.
