Effects of Bullying

While bullying was once considered a harmless childhood phenomenon, more and more people have come to realise it entails many undesirable consequences for the one who was bullied, which can be far-reaching. Bullying can happen to anyone at any time. Bullying can also affect everyone —those who are targeted, the aggressor, and the bystander.

The Targeted (Those who are bullied)
Those who are bullied are more likely to experience negative impacts in life and development, such as:
• Drop in grades and poor school attendance
• Loneliness and poor social relationship
• Physical ill-health
• Lowered self-esteem and depression
• Suicide (or “bullycide”)
• Self-harm
• Revenge leading to violent juvenile behaviour

The Aggressor (Those who bully others)
Bullying not only affects the one getting bullied, but also the one doing it. They are more likely to:
• Abuse alcohol and drugs
• Get into fights and vandalise property
• Drop out of school
• Have criminal convictions
• Be abusive toward their romantic partners, spouses, or children as adults

The Bystanders (Those who witness bullying)
Kids who witness bullying are also likely to be affected mentally and emotionally. They are more likely to:
• Experience a sense of fear or feel guilty towards the one who was bullied
• See bullying as being normal
• Miss or skip school

Bullycide

Those who are bullied are at risk of suicide; however, bullying alone is not the cause. Many issues contribute to suicide risk, including depression, problems at home, and trauma history. Bullying can make an unsupportive situation worse.
