Bullying Can Have Life-Long Effects

Posted: Updated:

The repercussions of bullying extend long beyond childhood.

A new British study followed over seven thousand children from grade school up until age fifty. They found those who were bullied were more likely to have poor physical and mental health by middle age.  

They were also more likely to be depressed and suffer from anxiety or suicidal thoughts. Men who were bullied were more likely to unemployed.
