Bullying has detrimental effects on students’ health, wellbeing and learning. It can make students feel lonely, unhappy and frightened.

Effects of Bullying Bullying can affect everyone—those who are bullied, those who bully, and those who witness bullying. Bullying is linked to many negative outcomes including impacts on mental health, substance use, and suicide. It is important to talk to kids to determine whether bullying—or something else—is a concern.

  • Such a good video, Bahman!! Bullying definitely leaves deep scars. I think both ends can truly suck but I’ve only been on the receiving end so I can speak to that more. When it persists for so long, you sometimes think hey, something maybe is really wrong with me and it can really mess with your self-confidence and worth. It sucks because people start bullying others possibly due to their own stressful situations, trauma, and insecurities. I LOVE LOVE this article where this teacher uses apples to explain to children why bullying sucks such a good read: https://ravishly.com/2016/12/28/genius-teacher-uses-apples-explain-why-bullying-sucks

  • this might be true but i low key hate it when people say “ ppl bully because they’ve been bullied in the past “ if u were bullied in the past you should know how painful it is to get bullied. don’t attack me.. this is how i feel. i’m getting bullied by a group of boys and i’ve thought about ending my life but why should i? their the ones who are ducked uo

  • Thank you for sharing this. I think it’s something that a lot of people have experienced but struggle to talk about it, so well done you for being able to put it out into the world. Also you look gorgeous in the thumbnail for this!!!

  • The PSTD point was good when I was bullied people accused me in groups, to this day when people accuse me of something and they change their story i freeze even when I know Im right
    (then again I wasn’t really bullied (only a week) much as I was eventually a popular person which I used to help people who were bullied as I felt their pain this allowed me to be loved and people would often fight back vocally for me)

  • I left my school the teacher was a bully hated me and my friends in 5th grade the 3rd grade teacher was great he lived me And my friends

  • Hello Tamzin My name is Jason Barnett I’m a former teacher and now lead a campaign group of families that have lost children to suicide because of bullying and school violence in schools. We recently went to Parliament in February to challenge the Government on the issue. This is our video story which we hope will give hope to anyone who needs it. https://youtu.be/98rGW2xTCjs

  • Share your story here in the comments and let’s help each other heal..
    I’ll start first:
    I was bullied for 1 year when I was 13. I ended up in a dark place and became very angry at everyone, including myself. This also pushed me to quit school 3 years later.. the bullying shaped me and i don’t like to say in a good way, because there are no winners in bullying.

  • I’m still affected by the bullying that happened to me at both home and at school I’m not mad at the kids they were probably just being kids or maybe they were abused I’m not mad at the kids for doing it but doesn’t mean I’m not still affected by it I am still mad at my stepdads for abusing me because they deny everything and yes it truly does affect me all the abuse and bullying that was done to me it has serious long term effect I have a very difficult time trusting people and I fear releshionships and sometimes I feel like I don’t care about anything it really does have its affects

  • I’m 25. I still can’t sleep. I still cry everytime i hear their names. They get to go on with their lives because they are not traumatized. I’m still stuck in the past. I’ve been ”free” for five years. But my mind will probably never be fully free

  • I’m 25 years old and im still struggling with everyday life from the long term affects of bullying. I don’t think it’s something you can ever fully recover from.

  • I was bullied during all my middle school, i started high school broken inside and scared as hell of being again the victim. It took me 5 years to regain my self esteem. During my 4th year i met them and they were shocked by how I phisically changed, now they try to flirt with me but it’s so cryingy that it makes me wanna throw up everytime lol

  • I’m being bullied by like 12 people and really I kind of isolate myself for everything and I do have like not too much depression but some And I don’t want to do anything with anyone anymore

  • Just today someone on Instagram was cyberbullying me calling me names, they sent me inappropriate images. And when I spoke up about it they said I couldn’t take a joke.
    I’ve blocked and reported them but I hate this feeling, being told to just ignore people that do these wrong things.
    Can you make a video on how to handle different types of bullying?

  • I recently graduated high school and started college and I began to realize how much it has impacted me. Every now and then I would get horribly depressed.

  • Bullies dont realize that they can push someone to their breaking point that causes the victim to cause violence such as school shootings..

  • Anyone who is currently being bullied look up the pygmalion effect you may think its okay to ignore bullies but it is not, believe me fighting back is the best way. If you are scared hit up gym and MMA classes over summer so you can defend your class in the worst case scenario by the first term back!

  • I was bullied throughout my childhood and no teacher ever cared even though I told them, I told my mom, my mom emailed them. One time they even blamed it on me???????? Im now just a fucking messed up teen that cant even take “thats not how you do it, this is how” without crying for 10 minutes because im so goddamn sensitive. Last time I was bullied was the beginning of summer last year when about 40 people were on me bc I asked a question. I wanna die.

  • Just beat their fucking ass that’s what my mom said. She said she doesn’t care if I get suspended for doing it as long as I’m standing up for myself, which I was surprised that she said that bc she’s strict

  • I’ve been bullied when I was in my kindergarten, highschool
    and YES it has severe impact on my behaviour, especially when it comes to anxiety and paranoia.
    Please don’t bully anyone

  • I’m 35 and i was bullied on Saturday by a complete stranger. He had to make a comment about my appearance In
    the most passive aggressive way. Such a little man.

  • Alll them u just said is me right now there name is joe and the school l at is Oliver House and he have my name on my Xbox and been send in me baby messages and is just seems so bathetic but is happening all the time

  • we all have our stories and lots of the damage is done to us when we are very young and undeveloped. I am a 37 year old man and was bullied terribly from the time I started kindergarten up until I graduated from high school. I was a very sensitive kid and lots of these creeps out there see that and they take advantage of you. When I was in high school what made it really bad is I started getting bullied by girls in school. That’s very messed up because that is not supposed to happen. I had mean girls putting down my intelligence and treating me poorly and I saw them treating other guys like they mattered. I suffered in silence and now as a adult I would say the most challenging effect for me is the ability to trust people. I have terrible anxiety around women and my biggest concern is everytime I meet a female is ”Is this woman going to treat me poorly and does she care how I feel”. I do meet lots of nice women out there but there are some real mean ones and it’s very scary and disturbing how some people out there can treat a innocent person like garbage based on nothing. This world is not made for nice people it’s made for creeps.

  • …..one time I handled bullying by violence…10 ppl were believing lies and rumors about me and decided to bully me….I gave them a beating….

  • I’m 35 years old and there’s not a day that goes by where I don’t have flashbacks from being bullied in school. As an adult it has caused me to have several lash outs. I used to get beat up and picked on by kids and when I got older I learned how to fight and started to take it out on people. It’s really said and it’s really scary.

  • “Bullies will also struggle as they get older; they might end up in jail” ������ (as you can tell, I’ve never gotten over what my bullies made/make me feel)

  • I was bullied mercilessly from age 12 until I graduated and it made me fucking insane. Which is why I don’t get bullied anymore.so here’s my advice to anyone who is getting bullied. You get bullied because people don’t respect you. The only real way to stop the bullying is to stand up and fight start taking boxing classes so if someone tries to bully you u can knock them the fuck out then you wont get bullied anymore. If you can’t afford self defense classes tell someone to meet you after school and bring a weapon NOT A GUN something that will hurt them but not kill them or fill a thermos will boiling cooking oil and throw it in a bullies face you’ll face consequences but u wont get bullied anymore. You might think it sounds extreme but take it from me someone who was bullied mercilessly by everyone including girls it is the only way to make it stop now I’m 23 and whenever I see anybody that use to bully me I look them in the eye and let them know they’re an inch away from death and dare them to bully me and I don’t have problems with bullying anymore so if u want the bullying to stop take my words it is just necessary.

  • I beat my father when I was a child cause he pushed me pushed for years. I flipped my switch in a second and fucked him up..years of an abused relationship can result in serious problems. Doesn’t matter who you are or what type of relationship youre in… FYI

  • My child is being bullied and I am at a loss as to what to do.
    Went for a sleepover on the weekend and bully came over and peed and put cleaner on the toothbrush.

  • I’m being bullied for being “smart” and flat-chested. I stuff my bra often but my peers always figure out that I stuffed it. Another girl just hates me because.. well, I don’t know why. She tries to make sure that I feel left out by my friends. She tries to make me feel like I’m a loser. Me, her, and my other friends (fake) were talking about what we’d name our kids, if we’d have any once we were older. I said Argentina, (yes, as in the country) and she said “Um, why can’t the kid have a normal name? I’ve literally never heard of a kid named Argentina. Ew.” and my other “friends” looked at me weird, laughed, and agreed. I only hang out with then because they’re the only people I have a friendship with, and because I hope to restore the bond.

  • Bullies can fuck off. I was maliciously bullied from elementary school through high school and beyond because I’m gay. To the point of me feeling that my life was in danger to multiple sexual assaults (1 at school in the bathroom). Just because they got shit at home, doesn’t give them an excuse to be psychopaths. I got shit at home, too. And I didn’t take it out on people who weren’t responsible. Because of the literal 10+ years of the bullshit, I struggle with depression and anxiety, and attempted suicide multiple times. Yet, even though I have serious rage issues, I don’t mistreat people.

  • Ive been suffering because of being bullied, i need to take medication life long.
    The world is a sick place.
    Animals have more feelings.
    I hope god will end the world soon.

  • When you see a kid being bullied or an adult or anyone anywhere…stand up for them. We are damaged adults not living life strugling with depression and anexiety and isolation and feeling suicidal, yes we answer back the bullies but still it becomes worst we have hearts and feelings we are humans…. if we get hurt we are not weak we get hurt because we would never hurt anyone cuz some pple are have no feelings at all cyz they are bad pple with no feelings, but pple have no humanity kids teenage even grown uos it’s awful.

  • Bullies don’t have abusive life but they bully you to feel funny cool and strong or have fun. Just like that with no reasons… they just wqnt to hurt pple.

  • I was bulllied in school when i was teenager and I’m on medication, i have ptsd and I’m 23 years old.. i still get ignored and bullied from time to time.

  • I feel like all this starts from the bully having a narcissistic parent that’s my conclusion cause I saw my bullies dad and he seemed quite mean to the asshole kid who bullies me so yeah.

  • I get bullied every single school year. There’s nothing I can do about it. I help my friends when they get bullied, but they don’t help me. The only people who know about my situation are my ex best friend and my brother and sister.: ‘) It’s a living hell. I have depression and my mother thinks it’s a phase. My grandparents keep calling me a skeleton because I’m “skinny” (even though I’m 10 pounds over weight) and tell me to eat more. My siblings act like they care but don’t actually. I’m only eleven. I thought that your childhood years were supposed to be the best years of your life, I guess I was misinformed. (Thanks for letting me vent.)

  • I’ve been bullied since grade 2. I’m in middle school still bullied because because I have Cancer and I can’t go to school without being made fun of for it… My cousin is always there to protect me though

  • Well done you’ve won because your now at university with a life and prospects all the shit you’ve gone through and to come out the other side better
    Best of wishes

  • I get it, I understand bullying should not be acceptable BUT, it will not officially stop. To think it will is to be naive, that’s like saying we stop doing drugs,”illegal ” it won’t stop. Best thing and ONLY thing is to educate the young on mental health, there IS a such thing as “enabling the weak, into knowing or thinking they are weak or not good enough when indeed it takes alot to live, this is where everyone says its “soft” not soft. Just uneducated not to care.
    Kids will bully other kids. There Kids! It what you should expect, not everyone will learn. But WE learn to be stronger then that. Move on and Plot that come up!

  • I get bullied in class by this girl called “Samaira” I don’t know how to spell it correctly, anyways I am a new student and obviously I have no friends so of course I’m the target! And the next thing you know is you will see her making fun of me or trying to find a way to belittle me, during class, she told me to sit next to her and obviously I didn’t want to because she’s always rude to me but nice to everyone, I didn’t want to but she kept shouting my name so I did, once I sat next to her she kept saying crap about me and kept talking about random stuff that I didn’t know about, I got used to her annoying me and belittling me but this time it went to far, she kept making fun of me for having no friends and saying that if you have no friends you’ll never survive as if it was the end of the world for me, I was upset and started crying.. not that type of crying where you scream as in the quiet cry, she started to be nice and say tht she was sorry and repeated it several times, she then asked for if I was her friend and I said no, she stopped talking to me along and stopped annoying me, she probably realises that what she’s doing is wrong but she doesnt seem to be bothered. I’m happy that she doesn’t bother me as much now, I guess..

  • you seem to me a lovely, young lady who is very confident. I don’t think it unfair to think that you have a low self esteem. You are just wounded inside because of what had happend and time will heal your wounds.
    I feel that you are strong and brave person to talk about bullying publicly and this is the beginning of the healing process. Well done!
    I am sure your video will help many many people. God bless you and lots of love.

  • I want people to know the long term affect of bullying is depression I am currently going through depression from being bullied because of my disability

  • I’m sorry to say this but every school year I’m bullied the schools don’t do anything to help yeah they might tell them to say sorry but they don’t prevent the bullying I’m also trying to convince my mom to make me take online school for highschool wish me luck.

  • its sucks. Bullying sucks. Being excluded by the girls, having to befriend the boys; then being kicked out of that group. It messes you up, man.

  • I hope you never get bullied again, I know from experience of the embarrassment and mental torment that it’s not a nice experience at all.

    Stand up for yourself if it happens because no one deserves to be treated with such little respect. (in a respectful manner, never resort to violence people!)

  • Its crazy how many things so many people can relate to in this video, it goes to show no one is alone and its important we all know that. I feel like a lot of people may feel some very similar things to you and think theyre crazy for it, I know I did, so its good to know other people go through similair things after being bullied.

  • Bullied from my home life, then school. Now in the work place. There is no escape. Other than turning into a complainer or a bully myself.

  • I’ve been bullied from 2nd to 5th grade until I moved somewhere else, and I’m in 8th grade currently. And even though I don’t get bullied anymore, I still feel anxious about somebody trying to knock me down, which then I try to isolate myself to avoid that.

  • I got bullied and mom and teachers are doing stuff but I heard a mean kid is coming to our school and I am not happy to go back because I want to marry Hatsune Miku and that makes it worse

  • This was so good! You did such a great job with this. I think it’s important that we hear how the impact of bullying doesn’t just stop as soon as you’re removed from the situation, the long term effects are often just as bad, if not worse, than the in the moment pain. I’m sorry you went through this but you really are doing so well now and being aware of these things and being able to talk about them is another step in the journey to healing from the damage. Big hug. xx

  • I relate to this, and have experienced some of these things too. I think it’s important to talk about it, so this was a good video to film x
