It is particularly thoroughly documented that bullying can lead to anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, psychosomatic disorders and suicidal thoughts. Being bullied can also lead to behavioral problems for some children.

- Some years ago, VG.no wrote that all focus in the school is on prevention and stopping bullying.

- It was bullying experts who sounded the alarm that children and young people who have experienced bullying receive little help afterwards.

- Researchers at Uni Research Health recently conducted a summary of knowledge about the consequences of being bullied. The findings in the report are not surprising, but still thought-provoking.
