Harassment (bullying)

harassment; bullying;

Bullying harms both the person being bullied and the person doing the bullying. Young people who are bullied can become anxious and depressed; some young people have committed suicide because of bullying. And bullies are more likely to have problems in the future, such as run-ins with the police.

Bullying is much more common than many people believe.

The website Reachout has many good topics about bullying. Reachout is an Australian website for young people when times get tough.
