There is no way to sugarcoat, whitewash, or downplay the impact of bullying on each and every single person involved, the numbers simply won’t allow it. Despite the modern ways of its occurrence, aggressive behavior and bullying are nothing new. The ever-growing awareness regarding mental health and forms of bullying and abuse (that it can be verbal, nonverbal, and not just physical) has made it easier to detect the problem and look for a solution. However, the point stands that bullying has constantly been associated with the development of mental health problems for both the victim and the bully, possibly creating a never-ending cycle of pain and suffering. The students affected by bullying experience a decreased amount of academic achievement and are more at risk of developing depression and anxiety. What is of greater concern is that the violence committed against the victims can lead to suicidal thoughts and tendencies among many of the victims.
