- Researches at King's College London found out that people who were bullied as a kid can suffer from negative physical and mental health even at the age of 50.
- According to the research study, 7,771 children born in 1958 were tracked from the age of seven until 50.
- The children who were bullied frequently had an increased risk of depression and anxiety. They are more likely to suffer from a low quality of life at 50.
- A similar study conducted in the past by Warwick University also showed that bullying had long-tern negative consequences. They will negatively affect health, job prospects and relationships.
- Several anti-bullying campaigns are warning about the negative consequences of bullying.
