Bullying leads to depression and suicidal thoughts in teens
from Medical Xpress
High school students subjected to bullying and other forms of harassment are more likely to report being seriously depressed, consider suicide and carry weapons to school, according to findings from a trio of studies reported at the Pediatric Academic Societies meeting in San Diego. "Teens can be the victim of face-to-face bullying in school, electronic bullying outside of the classroom and dating violence," said Dr. Andrew Adesman, senior investigator of all three studies. "Each of these experiences are associated with a range of serious adverse consequences."
