Study: Bullying impacts physical, mental health
Boston - A new study examined just how damaging bullying can be.
Researchers at Boston Children's Hospital followed more than 4,000 children from middle school through high school.
The results showed that if a child was bullied they were more likely to have mental health issues, be less physically healthy, have more symptoms of depression and lower self-worth.
The researchers say the health consequences of bullying may compound over time and remain long after the bullying ends.
