Childhood bullying can have lasting effects on mental health
Bullying can have a lasting effect on a person's mental health: A new study finds that children who were bullied frequently when they were 8 years old were more likely to develop a psychiatric disorder that needed treatment as an adult, compared with kids who were not bullied. The scientists also found strong evidence that being bullied as a child puts kids at high risk for depression as a young adult, according to the study, published in the journal JAMA Psychiatry.
