December 13, 2019 | Emily Taylor
A new study at the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health published recently online in the Journal of Public Health found that youths who reported being perpetrators of bullying were more likely to develop mental health problems compared to those who did not report being perpetrators of bullying.
The senior author, Silvia Martins, MD, PhD, is quoted, “Our findings provide an important extension to previous literature, and indicate that bullying behaviors prevention and intervention strategies among youth should consider how to take into account and handle negative feelings and mental health problems.”
