Cyberbullying Victims Have Higher Symptoms of Depression Than Bullying Victims

A recent study published in the American Journal of Public Health found that about one-third of students who had been cyberbullied had symptoms of depression (47 percent for those who ahd been both cyberbullied and bullied at school). Of those who were only bullied at school, slightly more than one-quarter showed symptoms of depression. One possible explanation given is that students who are cyberbullied feel more isolated than those who are bullied in school. Source: Boston Globe.
