Victims of High School Bullying May See A Lifetime of Mental Health Problems


Victims of bullying in secondary school have dramatically increased chances of mental health problems and unemployment in later life.

New research reveals a decade on, victims of persistent or violent bullying suffer the worst consequences.

Examples of bullying within the study include being called names; being excluded from social groups; being threatened with violence; and experiencing violence. As well as the consequences later in life, the research shows bullying affects the academic achievement of the victims while they are in school, and beyond into further and higher education.
