The impact of bullying can last a lifetime

Young victims of bullying are at risk of experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression and conduct problems, but these problems can sometimes persist even after the bullying has stopped.

In a recent study, we examined the adult outcomes of children who were bullied when they were 7 or 11 years old. The data used for this study came from 7,771 participants who were born during one week in 1958 in England, Scotland and Wales, and followed up until the age of 50.

Our findings show that the impact of bullying is still visible up to mid-life, four decades after people were bullied.
