dealing with bullies

Bullying is a problem that affects us all.

Studies show that people who are abused by their colleagues or peers are at risk for mental health problems, such as low selfesteem, stress, depression, or anxiety, and possible suicide.

Bullies are also at risk for problems as they are violating someone else’s rights. If unattended, it often leads to violent behaviour as the bully grows up. In a US study, it’s estimated that 1 out of 4 children who bully from primary school will have a criminal record by the time they are 30.
