Being bullied linked to mental health issues

Parents, take note. If your child is being bullied in secondary school, it may dramatically increase his/her chances of mental health problems and unemployment later in life, researchers have warned.

The study found that being bullied in school increases the extent of mental health problems at age 25 by 40 per cent.

"Our research shows that being bullied has negative impact on important long-term outcomes, especially unemployment, income and ill-health," said a researcher.

"Bullying is widespread in schools and many studies document a negative relationship between bullying and educational outcomes," Gorman added.

The researchers also found that being bullied increases the probability of being unemployed.
