Cyber Bullying and Depression

CFAH: In Cyber Bullying, Depression Hits Victims Hardest

Young victims of electronic or cyber bullying Рwhich occurs online or by cell phone Рare more likely to suffer from depression than their tormentors are, a new study finds. Traditional bullying, the kind that occurs in the school building or face-to-face, is different. Victims and bully-victims Рthose who both dish it out and take it Рare more likely to suffer from depression than are those who are bullies, but not victims.
