There is a link between bullying and suicide, and an urgency to understand the complexity that drives victims from depression and hopelessness to ideation to action. Studies have shown that bullying aggravates depression and increases suicide risk for both the victim and the perpetrator. 1  2  Suicide is a complex issue.

Most mental health experts would argue that claiming bullying is the only cause of suicide is much too simplistic. Bullying aggravates depression and increases suicide risk and the seriousness of the issue shouldn’t be minimized. But, failing to look at the other contributing factors related to.

The Complicated Connection Between Bullying and Suicide First of all, it is actually not all that uncommon for adolescents to think about suicide.

About 18% of all students in the U.S., irrespective of if they had been bullied, report experiencing suicidal ideation (they have seriously considered attempting suicide during the past 12 months). “We know that causation is not necessarily there.” That means there is no direct link between bullying and suicide right now, according to the experts.

For every suicide among young people, there are at least 100 suicide attempts. Over 14 percent of high school students have considered suicide, and almost 7 percent have attempted it. Bully victims are between 2 to 9 times more likely to consider suicide than non.

Van der Wal and colleagues3 found a strong association between being bullied and depression and suicidal ideation in girls, and Luukkonen and colleagues4found that being bullied and bullying others are both potential risk factors for suicidal behavior in girls. Results suggest that the relative odds of suicidal ideation are elevated for youth who are victims of bullying (OR = 5.61, 95 % CI, 4.11, 7.64), as well as those who are victims of peer harassment (OR = 2.06, 95 % CI, 1.53, 2.79).

  • Anyone: “I want to die.”
    Annoying ass religious person: gOd wOuLdn’T wAnT yOu tO dO tHat!

    But seriously if that’s your answer to a suicidal person, what the hell is wrong with you.

  • Suicide and bullying are the highest ranking problems we all have to face unbearably as humans.

    See? This is what happens when people decide to advocate for freedom of speech unlawfully, because it can open a floodgate of abuse and other extremely heavy unbearable consequences.

    Yes now of course free speech is an extremely important human right and rights are an important part of people’s lives we should fight for, but at the end of the day, you know no one else is responsible for the choices you make, whether your actions could result in tragedy!

    For all you evil minded free speech advocates out there, we shouldn’t need to be telling you people as if you are dumb, when you clearly know fine well of what your words and actions can do to someone, and you also don’t have any idea of what kind of person’s rights you are defending for!

    This honestly has truly made me think about how careful i should be when talking to someone.

    At the end of the day, we can’t always hold back important views of expression, but we can (as people), do our best to make a difference with things such as tolerance and such!:)

    Much love and peace to all!

  • my sister is 15 she’s is almost a freshmen she does what teenagers do when they are sad I feel bad and try to make her feel better Jesus is with us I say she say’s “Natalie you are the best sister I had I love you.” so make sure if you have a sister that is depressed take my advice. 1:let them calm down to give them water and get a weighted blanket if you don’t have one search one up on goggle. 2:cuddle with them and watch something funny:) 3: let them take a nap. and last but not least 4:let them talk to a friend. bye and thank you

  • JaQuavious seeing this after going to school with you. I never thought bad of you and you were always happy and tried to make others happy! and you have become so much more now through God! ❤ hopefully you will see this one day! Keep doing you!

  • I love the videos by The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints but I’m Muslim. This video was so inspirational when the boy said he will not live in the place where he at

  • I was in this situation from pre-k through 8th grade my entire life kids usually bullied me a lot name calling me and stalking me then I was depressed

  • Whoever sees this, I love you and have a great day. I once saw a billboard that said “I will always love you” -God. It inspired me.

  • a 15 year old girl in my school committed suicide
    Me and my friends were talking about it
    We were all shocked and felt bad for the girl
    At that time I was struggling if self-harm
    I was 13 and never told anyone

  • The Book of Revelation 20:11-14
    This truly explains the event before we whom are called will be able to enter into the kingdom everlasting. There truly is a degree of understanding.

  • Yes there are lots of reasons why people kill themselves or have thoughts adverse childhood experiences are a huge cause of suicidal thoughts probably the biggest cause people with an ace score of 6 or higher are like 12 times more likely to have had suicidal thoughts than people who scored a 0 so it’s a huge cause also aces are risk factors for there thought and attempts being more frequent and worse and also risks for those causes you mentioned like medical problems mental health problems drugs and alcohol alot of those things aces are risk factors for a ton of things people are at big risk of suicide if they had alot of aces i had alot of suicide thoughts and attempts in my life aces has definitely played a role in all of it I scored a solid 8 on it aces is definitely a risk factor

  • R I P Danny Love u Man someday when i got money big money Im going to Make a foundation in your name and Help People who get bullied / I gott bullied so im gonna do this for me and for u Danny Love u.

  • Even if I say that I feel depressed nobody would care, so I like to keep it in my heart only:((
    Do this, cuz sometimes it’s important to learn it!!!:(

  • I’m not joking you just prevented a suicide the hotline didnt help and looking on youtube was my last resort and it helped enough for me to work through it bless you and your family have a great life

  • Wasn’t it great to see the warrior of this soul of God. When struggling he turned to the God who gave him life. I love this scripture Moses 6: 60 For by the water ye keep the commandment; by the Spirit ye are justified, and by the blood ye are sanctified; (It is simple but so powerful, God will be your judge, never underestimate the Witness of the Spirit, it’s Godly power is a message of HOPE)

  • JaQuavious is awesome. This past year I’ve lived in the same apart building as him and gone to college with him. Such a great man.

  • i lived that in my own flesh, and i do testify that the faith in my eternal father and the obedience to his covenants give us the strength to become more than we ever though we were able to achieve. I though of my self i was worthless but now people tell me everytime “i love the way you are so confident of yourself and always defend what it ‘s right” in the past i didn’t was that kind of person, i lived with fear, but now i do testify that the gospel of the savior give us the power to change us into better beings, in something wonderful.

  • Thank you for sharing your experience. I’m sorry you have had a rough time, but I’m glad you’re getting help from our Savior, Jesus Christ. ��

  • The lord has helped me through the darkness and he will help you through the darkness, JaQuavious. Just hold onto him and it’ll be alright.

  • this may only be me, but i think that atleast 10% or more in this comments are either ”drama queens” or just here for support, because for some odd reason they think they can change anything just by one god damn awful comment like ”hope you doing fine❤️” like jesus christ like that would do anything, and yes, yes i may be a dramma queen right now, as i said, 10% or more

  • Bro this is true bcz my life also same so many troubles,impossible situations and many failures. Know I’m waiting for God blessings if any situation love you God ��������

  • I got bullied a lot when I was in school I just got out of it I just can’t take it anymore frustrated and irritated to the point that made up my mind if anyone else ever tried to bully me I was going to make an example out of them to let everyone else know I was the wrong one to mess with a whole no regrets because the stitches they had to take because of me equaled up all the pain they gave me

  • I have so much empathy for you and I know we dont know each other, and you most likely wont see this but I love you, and you are so important and and valuable, remember we are the point for the entire universe the Lord created all the stars the planets everything you see for us, how then can we not be infinitely valuable we are the point to all things.

  • This video and message fills what seems to be a huge gap in most discussions about bullying and suicide. In my youth I was short, had braces, glasses, and a cleft lip. I was bullied and struggled a lot…feeling as though I didn’t have a single friend in the world. What saved my life wasn’t focusing on fixing the bullies, but on my testimony that I was a child of God and that regardless of what anyone else thought or said of me, I knew He loved me. He knows you on a level your bullies could never know. Understanding your divine heritage and having a relationship with your Heavenly Father (through prayer) helps you realize your innate worth….even when you feel know one else does. The gospel, with the help of my parents, empowered me to see my worth and come out stronger more than mere platitudes or trying to control the words of others ever could.

  • I don’t know what’s happening in my life…. I want to die.. But afraid of having pain….Every night… When I go to sleep… I always pray that I never wake up ����

  • This message is so timely. If you know someone is struggling, just be there for them. Invite them to dinner, an outing, watch a movie. Just knowing that someone cares makes a difference. It did for me.

  • oh really Youtube?
    i tried to strangle myself only 3 times yesterday night and had sum crises
    annd u r giving me this?
    not cool dude
    not cool
    im totally fine

  • AAAWWWWW IF I WAS HIS MOM OR FRIEND I WOULD STAY UP ALL NIGHT LONG TOO TRY TOO TALK HIM OUT OF A SUICIDE AND IF I WAS ONE OF THE STUDENTS AT SCHOOL I WOULD TRY TOO BE A FRIEND WITH HIM I WOULD ALSO TAKE UP FOR HIM FOR ANY OME WHO TRYS TOO BULLY HIM IF I KNOW HIM I WOULD GIVE HIM A HUG TOO MAKE HIM FILL ALL BETTER AND CHEER HIM UP IM SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOST MAAM AND PEOPLE NEED TOO STAND UP TOO A BULLY AND NOT LET THEM MISS TREAT YOU

  • I have been getting bullied for the past 2 years it’s boutta be 3. And I kept reporting the Incidents and things they do to me and my principle said “you have to have proof” but how am I supposed to get proof when I’m not allowed to have my phone out….and they bully me when people aren’t around so they won’t get caught. All my teachers knows and they tired helping and my math teacher was pissed because they won’t do anything about it only if I have proof. And now i have to take depressions pills. And like 5 or 3 days ago u had a brake down and I just wanted to give up but I knew I couldn’t and I have to just keeping living with this pain but one day it will stop and when that day comes I hope they regret it…bc it hurts so much I cry myself to sleep everyday and it’s hard on my family. My mom calls and complains to the school that they need to take care of it or she’s gonna do it herslef. Bc she doesn’t want to wake up and not have me be here bc of my bullies..

  • Martial Arts is the sure way to bullyproof your kids. I will always encourage my kids to show respect to others, and never look for trouble. But once anyone shows disrespect or starts trouble(verbal or physical) towards them, they need to stand up for themselves and fight back.

  • Nice video, however there is something important to mention. Important fact most people don’t realize is that bullying does not actually increase rates of suicide among people who are not suffering from chronic depression. People who are already suffering chronic depression are already at higher likelihood of suicide. It’s them who then suffer a higher rate of suicide from bullying.

  • This is real life and I felt his story!

    I have felt that same safety when I was alone and needed someone by my side.

    The way to healing was made clear and the support network I would need to pull me through was amazing.

  • Sometimes I’m so tired of all of those mindset when I think I should think “positive” and I just want to show someone that I’m not feeling ok inside… you feel numb

  • In situations like this, parents must; 1) enroll the child or young person in a good martial arts/self-defence program; 2) seek legal counsel. This is especially the case in those situations where school authorities not only refuse to admit that there is a problem, but also blame the victim for fighting back.

    As for the bullies, each one should be caned Singapore style!

  • I can relate to a lot of these things, most of which because of what my ex-fiancé did to me. I will never forget the pain she caused me and how she destroyed my life.

  • What a handsome child he was. RIP. How kids can do this to another is beyond me. Bring back corporal punishment and see if that helps somewhat. Anything is better than bullying a young child into committing suicide. The parents will never be the same again without their lovely son.

  • When you wanna die and escape the reality but also afraid to be forgotten by your love ones when time pass and they’ll eventually move on

  • I’ve been bullied for 7 yrs. I’ve always wanted to give up and hurt myself. But, I can’t do that to my family. There were so many times I have tried hurting myself during school

  • I’ve had suicidal thoughts and I did try to attempt it once. I regret the fact that I ever resorted to do that. I feel so bad because of it, and I’m glad I didn’t go all the way through with it, I would’ve missed alot.. I’m still a bit suicidal but I’m trying to get better. It’s been kind of hard though because I don’t get to talk to my boyfriend too often, so I just go back to being lonely and crying all night.. I wish the best to all of you and take care. Times will get better believe me.. ❤❤

  • Whoa small world I know jaquavious from when I was young he was in my ward, my mom even took him on his first temple trip. I never had an idea he was struggling with this but I’m glad I know and I hope to be able to talk to him again.

  • Important question if someone important to me leaves me or die’s every year. Will that be called frequency trama? I personally think it does because I am still a child (not even a teenager) and this has been going on since I was 8, so 5 years.

  • More evidence that the churches are failing us all. Churches that have become like the world. This makes me so angry. Hoping that he shall grow up to become a man in paradise.

  • 100 Reasons why you shouldn’t commit suicide.

  • So many of these instances happen and yet nobody seems to learn anything. May the victim rest in peace, and condolences to his family that remains.

  • I am being bullied in primary school and this time they told me to die and thats what I want to do kill me but I turned that around and play with people who respect me those bully should sort them selves out

  • No one will do anything for a child with suicide besides therapy. And therapy doesn’t always help. You should always try and talk with a actual professional to try and seek help.

  • Whoever is going through any of these right now, i wish you my love and support. You are valid and you deserve love and you deserve to exist & be here.

    This is a free space for anyone who wants to vent and/or talk about issues that are bothering them ��

  • on the surface: I am
    a puddle of mud.

    just underneath,
    slightly below:
    I am

    an ocean

    of grief.

    unable to bear

    the agonizing, suffocating, debilitating, paralyzing lonely pain

    of this life
    no more.

    I am undone.

    lost.

    terrified.
    damaged.

    broken.

    rage engulfs

    every cell of me. I cannot bear

    to breathe.

    I am drowned

    in loneliness, and in suffering,

    and in defeat.

    hopelessness:

    my only familiar

    companion.

  • So sad, wish something could be done about social media and this insanity. When I was a kid when school ended you left and had friends and family to hang out with but today it seems that they can’t get away from the protagonists. The bullies can relentlessly tease them outside of school creating a much more hostile environment. You use to have an option to walk away and not listen to B.S..
    I pray for the Fitzpatrick family.

  • That school should be charged for not helping him when he needed help! The same thing in the town where Phoebe Prince took her own life. I bet you his tormenters rejoiced him when he committed suicide and I hope that their happiness will be short lived!! SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!! FUCK THIS SCHOOL!!!!!

  • I actully used to have suicidal thoughts
    But the thing thats keeping me away from killing myself
    Are my dreams,family,and friends
    That’s why i dont get them anymore

  • WARNING WARNING THIS JOKE IS NOT FOR EVERYONE AND IS TRUE hello now on with the joke. I should be part of the suicide squad cause I’ve attempted many times �� ��

  • So powerful & breathtaking. I really can relate to all of this. I will be sharing it out to spread the word. Thank you for insta message

  • I didn’t really need this video to know I’m suicidal LMAO I already had the perfect plan (I think) and I was ready to do it in a couple weeks. But then I moved and everything got ruined. And chances are I’ll have to wait till next year

  • I have delved into a deep and severe depression since 2020 started, right from January. When quarantine started I’ve been dealing with suicidal thoughts. Nothing is helping me so far and it’s really hard. I hope things will get better and I can be happy again, I hate this god forsaken year. I’m going to the doctor next month so hopefully I’ll be ok and they’ll help.

  • WHY BULLY HIM?! TOO ME HE IS SO ATTRACTIVE CAUSE HIS HAIR LOOKS SO SOFT AND HIS CHUBBY LOOKS!DON’T TELL ME YOU DON’T WANT TO LAY DOWN IN HIS STOMACH(ok maybe i’m just weird….)

  • I am a 22year old male, gone through 24 electroconvulsive therapy procedures and 35 Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation sessions. Attempted Suicide by overdose twice. May someone direct me where I can get a fucking gun to put it on the roof of my mouth?

  • I am an avid #MentalHealthAwareness advocate and performer, and I love this so much. I travel the country trying to bring that awareness on stages, in classrooms, hospitals, and on my YouTube channel, so I get excited when I see other advocates. ��❤

  • God loves you, don’t give up… You don’t understand, but your human mind is not able to understand what God does in your life. Just trust, because the One who created and you and created the Universe is willing to help you if you seek!

  • My mums had to watch all her siblings pass before her and I’ve sat with her through every one and seen what it did to her. I resent those memories, I just want it to stop.

  • Here is a hug for those who never got one when they needed one��‍♀️��‍♀️�� Here is a few words of comfort for those who never heard them when they needed to hear them “It’s going to be okay, you’re alright, you’re safe, you’re loved and cared for. You will get through this. You’re not alone.” And some words to carry you forth Remember You are stronger than you think, braver than you feel, smarter than you know,life is tough but so are you! Peace and happiness be with you all ��✌��

  • I have someone close to me who wants to die. But while I have said this message on many YouTube videos trying to get as many prayers as possible, this time is a little different, that’s going to make a big difference. I’m asking for prayers dont get me wrong. But now I’m much more faithful. I’m asking for as many prayers as possible. People you know, family, friends, churches, everyone. I have faith, if you can have faith it can do miracles too. God bless and may you spread this message of faith and as a prayer request. X)

  • Those who bullied him should be charged with his murder and named no matter how young they are. Are you happy now you low life peace’s of shite.

  • SOCIAL MEDIA BULLYING IT ALL HAS TO STOP THERE MUST BE A WAY…..TEXTING ETC HAS DISCONNECTED PEOPLE WERE THEY CANT EVEN COMMUN ICATE ANYMORE

  • School don’t do anything about bullying I was bullied 3 years in high school because I didn’t know how to read and I was in special classes and I told all my teacher and the principal and you know what they told me don’t leasing to them just walk away. I was so tired that I tried to commit suicide on my birthday day July 23, 2015 when i see my scar on my wrist I still remember when I tried to take my own life

  • Aw, such a wonderful message JaQuavious. Thanks for sharing your message and for always being so kind to people. You are awesome friend!

  • I relate to 4,5,6,8,10,11,12,15,17my past put my life down in a deep place where I lost my control my life and my emotions everything and now It’s been 2 years and I’m so much better I love my life yes once in a while I get depressed and sad and lose control of my emotions and mental state but it’s been better to cope with and my life had been getting better everyday.

  • Having a family member who attempts suicide is a big cause my grandfather use to threaten suicide when mom was a kid and she grew up beleiving that suicide was the answer so she would often threaten suicide infront of us so we grew up thinking that suicide was the answer as well as traumatized us you don’t have to see the person attempt suicide it could just be a threat that someone is traumatized them for me and my mother our suicidal thoughts and attempts were caused by a combination of being emotionally and physically abused at home being bullied at school being abandoned and traumatized because of that and also the examples that we witnessed at home that taught us that suicide was propper and yes passed suicide attempts could make it more likely because they make you feel guilty for attempting it and make them feel like they failed so they try it again or it can traumatized the person because suicidal attempts are often traumatic and can also cause medical problems and can make some one develop ptsd or worsen ptsd because those events are often scary and do damage

  • I feel so ready. But my anxiety about being a lost ghost/soul wandering around the world for eternity, after I die is what scares me the most. I guess our religion helped in a way to prevent me from doing it. But again it’s very painful to live. I always pray to just not wake up.

  • Hi I love you! Guess what, I’m your new therapist, if you just need to vent/rant or even need advice answer in the replies. I will reply to every reply and not with some “Aw I’m so sorry I hope it gets better”shit. I won’t judge or throw hate, I’m here for you hun.

  • I used to have thoughts but I blanked them out and have never thought like that again because I know that I will shatter more lives than just myself. Never give up, keep going and don’t ever give up. There are so many more people who would get hurt than just you.

  • I’ve had some thoughts on suicide from being bullying, My step mom doesn’t accepted me for who I am, Or how my hopes and dreams are going downhill ��
    So I just prayed to God to help me out because he loves me and you too ❤️
    So please somebody pray for me to help keeping me from doing that ✝️

  • Relative poverty should be mentioned. If you have no transport to get away or change your scenery for even a little while it’s hopeless. Too bad USA doesn’t believe in good public transportation. When I lived in NYC for the first time in my life I could go where I needed to go. That took care of about 50 percent of my mental illness. Oh well. Just take meds instead. It helps NAMI support big pharma.

  • If the school actually help and didn’t help the bully’s that amazing boy would be alive having fun and enjoying life what a terrible school R.I.P little man

  • You idiot…… Do you understand that ending your life causes so much pain for other people! Bare some pain and ride it out. Ending your suffering causes a lot more suffering. Your family, friends, and mates care about you. Just because some thugs put you down don’t act like its the end. Get da police, friends, council, and adults to help.

  • Being called a coward by a bunch of people you don’t care about is worth dying. Even if you destroy others lives it’s still worth it, that’s actually the best part. Family is a fraud and love doesn’t exist.

  • I lived in the same Apartment as JaQuavious He’s a big Breath of fresh air Good Job Bro Keep it up You rock My Friend. He’s an Awesome Roommate!

  • Whenever I think about suicide, I always try to think about my lil sister. I can’t just leave her alone in this world. I may not love myself, but I love my lil sister.

  • I know exactly how it feels to be alone. Before i trust God, I felt alone. Thank you so much for this video. This has a powerful lesson to learn

  • “I give up”— this broke my heart! He gave up because the world is simply UNFAIR! May his soul rest in eternal peace. My heart goes out to his parents and community!:(

  • Bullying should always be taken seriously. Always.

    If it was, my best friend Sophie would be here, alive, celebrating her 18th birthday this August. Too many children end up like this and its heartbreaking.

  • IF NOBODY HAS ANYTHING GOOD AND KIND TO SAY TO ANYBODY, JUST STOP TALKING TO THEM!!!
    LEAVE THEM ALONE AND M.Y.O.B.
    IT’S NOT THAT DIFFICULT!!!

  • Does anyone ever feel like you’re not present anymore, and it’s almost as if the time had stopped altogether?
    Like you’re invisible now. Nothing you do is meaningful, useful, pleasant, or even your conscious choice.
    Well, that is me.
    Someday it will happen that I won’t be able to distract myself from this suffocating feeling anymore.
    I didn’t really want to go like this. Didn’t want to hurt people that care about me and wanted to see the world. I wanted to get through this and if I had to die, I thought I’d die for something important, or at least leave others a reason to smile when I’m gone.
    But with time it seems as this is not going to happen.
    I think I already died there, inside, a long time ago.
    But the body is still in this world, craving for anything to hold on to.
    These things slip through my fingers so easily.
    I will kill myself.
    This is my destiny.

  • In the summer of 2015 I tried to end my life. My parents didn’t care, they found me with the pills in the bathroom. First they yelled at me, then they ground me for a month. This encounter kinda thought me something. If people say they love me, they really don’t. If people say they care they really don’t. Anyone I try to talk to does not care. They say I’m attention-seeking or that I’m ungrateful for the life I was given. Sure this is the life I was given, but I don’t want to live it.

  • I feel selfish. When people say “You’re not alone” that makes me feel worse because I want to be the only one. I don’t want anyone else to hurt like I do and I don’t want to be happy if everyone else is sad. I also want all the attention and help to be focused on me but I know I can’t have that when other people are in pain too.

  • Sometimes in class when I feel so stressed out and depressed I just wanna go outside, find a quiet place and cry a little.. Ya know just to let go of the tears I’ve been holding

  • Bullying truly exists and that in itself is a very sad thing to say about our society and mankind as a whole. It exists in children and adults. It needs to be stopped PERIOD. Bullies are inhumane and the lowest of the lows. Wish people would just stop and not feed this sickness in our society. Bullying and hate unfed would soon be bullying and hate dead. I hope we can all make it our goal in life to stop this and instead make a Kindess Revolution instead…..

  • I just wish I could tell someone that I’m not okay. I’m really not okay… I want to tell someone but it’s so hard for me. Even if I know they won’t judge me, I’m still scared. I don’t want to even think of how the woman who raised me would feel if I told her I don’t want to live anymore. I can’t, but I want to…

    I’m sorry.

  • I do have suicidal thoughts sometimes I do take prescription drugs but when I wasn’t taking them my suicidal thoughts were much more frequent and worse and I was attempting I don’t attempt any more and there’s alot of reasons why I haven’t attempted in a long time one of the reason is because I don’t think I would complete my attempt anyways so what the point just makes things worse it’s a great thing that I’ve never learned how to use a gun or been around guns because yes I probably would of completed my attempt because then I would have more access to suicide completion I would say guns are the most affective way to do that but no there the ones that are the most exsessible that’s accurate I’m not going to say what are more affective way to do suicide because I don’t want people with a history of suicide or people who are suicidal getting any ideas so I’m just going to say gun is the most exsessible and that’s why in someway I’m thankful never got a hold of a gun because if I did then I probably won’t be here today

  • I had suicidal toughts when I was very young, because I was harshly bullied and the teachers didn’t gave a shit ’bout me, I still have them, but not as bad as when I was in elementary school. Now, instead of whising myself dead, I wish my bullies a slow painful death, because they cannot be turned into better people and I hate them with my whole heart

  • I was bullied when I was a child, some of my classmates don’t care my feelings at all, they were laughing my face because I was ugly, but I didn’t bully them because I was afraid.
    As time goes by, they know about bullying just wrong and apologize to me. Hope they’re understand now and don’t bully others.
    Lastly, I’m still alive and I’ll appreciate my life even in the bad experiences. I will not bully everyone else.
    Hope you can read it.:)��

  • The thing is, being bullied isn’t even the worst part. It’s the fact that no one ever supports you when you do get bullied. They either won’t give a shit, or they won’t actually consider it bullying behavior and casually dismiss it as ‘teasing’. Nothing is ever their fault and everything is yours. They’re practically karma-proof. You’re beyond powerless to do something about it, yet you’re still blamed for that, even though it’s mostly because of other’s people’s bad choices giving the bullies even more power and encouragement (as if they had enough of that already) and further take away yours, and even if you did take action, you’ll only end up facing the very trouble and consequences your bullies were supposed to face. They could push you off a building and you’ll still be blamed for standing too close to the edge.

    All those anti-bullying campaigns and whatnot keep telling you “Being bullied is not your fault”, but when it actually happens to you, you’re told otherwise.

  • Those Bullies Disgusts Me, Bullying Is a Serious Issue and WE SHOULD NEVER AND I REPEAT NEVER!!! SHOULD ACT ON IT!!!! FUCK!!!! I AM SICK OF THIS SHIT, BULLIES CAN GO FUCK THEMSELVES AND THEY CAN ALL BURN IN FUCKING HELL!!!!

  • I’m truely sorry you loss your beautiful son and felt he couldn’t reach out to you all.I feel your pain mom.I hope his story and letter helps others in his situation.god bless.rip

  • I was bullied relentlessly in elementary school middle school and high school and even getting on the bus in the morning and coming home I really thought about hurting myself then two but they will never take my power and I will never give them that I am 42 now and I still get bullied even cyber bullying I hated school but I graduated in 1995

  • why do some kids today think it is so cool to bully others? and when the young man / young woman take their own life because of the bullying do the bullies have any remorse or do they continue on bullying others?

  • There should a new law. Zero tolerance bullying law. If you go to the police and say this dude or these dudes are bullying me and have some sort of proof i.e video, voice recording then these people automatically are expelled from school even do some jail time or 1000 hrs community service or something. These bullies are getting away always! Why? Cuz they know they can! Theres no punishment! Theres no consequences! Thats the problem. Make them due time…

  • If the parents did tried how come they still make him go to school:/ they should’ve stopped and let him stay home fight the school and if that doesnt work hkmescholl him

  • They say that they should help the bullied. But nothing is ever done to correct the bullies. They get off scot free. The victims become the big topic. But the bullies never see the light of news broadcasts.

  • Thank You for this video
    I Know how it feels to be alone
    I am 16 I am still scared sad and lonely
    But I Know that I will always have heavenly father on my side

  • My friend JaQuavious, you are one of the few things I truly miss about Provo. Those were some great moments in the cafeteria we had! You have a gift for making others feel better about what is happening in their lives, thanks for sharing your story and good luck with your future adventures!

  • NEW music video from Spoken Word ARTIVIST Aaron Ableman about Standing up to Bullies.

  • You are not alone. May your beautiful light continue to shine so brightly that it will light your way always with His Grace & Love beside you ����

  • I hat fucking bullies R.I.P sorry for your loss I got bullied and I know what it was like so if punched the girl so hard 2 in her face and she never went near me ever again

  • I was bully back from Haiti they use to call me half brain �� like Im retardate still to this day I got bully but with god grace I’m still a live.

  • It’s 8:05 and today I loaded a gun and sat for a few hours just thinking about pulling the trigger.. then I thought about just calling the police and maybe let them do it for me. All I would need to do is point it towards them and it’s over. But I can’t do that to whomever it is that shows up. Same for doing it myself, I can’t do that to whomever in my family that ends up finding me. I can’t let them keep seeing that over and over. So I do nothing for another day

  • I feel so sorry for this kid and I hope his bullies are burdened with guilt for ever, so they fall into an spiral of suffering and regret over their actions.

  • This was my good friend Daniel from boy scouts and would be going to my school right now if he had not taken his life. All of you should make friends with those kids that are bullyed harshly and maybe you can prevent things like this

  • “teen suicide”. lol. i was a teen once and suicidal, but it had absolutely nothing to do with my age. I hate how people say “troubled teens”. Such ignorance.

  • I’m a young person who has SA(I think) and I never told my family about this before because I don’t want to tell them and they think that I’m being dramatic because all I did was look this up and they don’t need to know I watch this for myself to know if I do these think I’m a kids so maybe I am acting crazy about something that well be gone in some years my…sister is the one who gave me a..uhhh “sad feeling” or as I would say the problem I don’t hate her I just don’t think that if we were not family we would be friends she’s a bully and she(maybe) why I have SA and thoughts like these but I don’t want to tell anyone about these because I’m a kid

  • So sad may God bless his soul him ��. I yet don’t know if the bullying only that led him to do this,or there are other reasons!! I just wonder where were the parents when he complained about getting bullied!! Where were they when he took his own life!! This is very sad, my prayers go to the family and friends. I just can’t imagine that a 13 years old kid gives up this way!!

  • A few days ago my friend told me she wanted to die, and a few months ago I saw her cut herself at school. I’m telling her how she’s worth it and she can get through this and everyone has hard times and stuff like that. I’m just scared. I don’t wanna lose my best friend…

  • I’m sorry so sorry that this boy felt so insignificant and miserable, that he had to kill himself to escape the pain. But did tell his parent’s what was going on? If so, why did they keep sending him there? I would have taken my son out a long time ago, and not wait until they kicked him out!!

  • WHO EVER BULLY HIM R STUPID FOR THERE WHOLE INTIRED LIFE AND NEED GO TO JAIL TO AND NEED GO TO HELL SEE HOW IT FEELS TO BULLY SOMEONE

  • If I have a choice to make, I want to die just for one day bcs I want to knw who are going to cry when I’m gone.. And the next day when I’m wake up, I can simply appreciate those people who cry for me and leave those who doesn’t..

  • One of the biggest symptoms of depression:
    Feeling frequently tearful and emotional

    My brain whenever I feel sad:

    Ha bitch. You weak

    Logic

  • The school should be punished also for what happened to that young boy, because if that school have action for bullying it wont happen like that.. Hope those kids who bullied with him will realize what they did.. R.I.P.
