Why Is This Important?

Bullying is unwanted aggressive behavior involving a real or perceived power imbalance. This includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, physically or verbally attacking someone, and excluding someone on purpose. Often, bullying is a repeated behavior, resulting in multiple attacks on the same person. Kids who are bullied are more likely to experience depression, anxiety, substance use, and health complaints. Some of these effects can persist into adulthood. Additionally, kids who are bullied often experience decreased academic achievement and are more likely to skip or drop out of school.
