Bullying The state of the epidemic

A survey conducted by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health found:

25 percent of middle school students report being bullied

16 percent of high school students report being bullied

Both middle and high school students who were bully-victims (they bullied and also were bullied) were more than three times as likely to report seriously considering suicide.

Students who were bully-victims (they bullied and also were bullied) were significantly more likely to use alcohol and other drugs.
