Bullying Can Take a Toll on a Teen’s Mental Health
In an article by New Jersey 101.5, they address the mental health issues that arise from bullying and how to notice the signs of a bullying.
The Pew Research Center reports that 59% of teens say they had been bullied or harassed online and many feel that teachers, social media companies and politicians are doing little to address this issue.
Parents may start to see signs of bullying. McQuillen said keep an eye out if kids are not enjoying things like they used to. They may exhibit signs of anxiety, depression, have difficulty sleeping and academic problems. They may also isolate themselves from family and friends when they would normally be excited to be around them.
