Bullied children more likely to suffer poor mental health later in life
Bullied children more likely to suffer poor mental health later in life

(February 21, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From North Carolina - Being bullied in childhood raises risk of poor mental health in adulthood, according to a report published in JAMA Psychiatry. Researchers followed over 1,200 children from the ages 9,11, and 13 into adulthood. Results showed that those who reported being bullied in childhood, and those who reported being bullies, were at raised risk of psychiatric disorders when compared to those with no bullying history at all. Those who reported being victims of bullying were much more likely to have depressive, anxiety or panic disorders, as well as higher levels of suicidal thoughts.
