Discover How Bullying Impacts People in the Workplace

Bullying affects millions of people around the world. It doesn’t just happen at schools between children, either. Bullying can happen in the workplace too, and has a negative effect on both mental and physical wellbeing. If you see anyone being bullied, or are the victim of abuse yourself, then you need to tell somebody.

If you fail to do so, then the bullying may escalate and there’s no knowing how the victim may react. There is cause to believe that people who are bullied in the workplace risk developing chronic illnesses including heart disease. They can also face mental health issues caused by bullying such as depression and anxiety. The risk of suicide also increases, due to the depression that victims may feel.

Take a look at this guide to see how bullying impacts people physically and mentally, and make sure you know how to put an end to bullying.

Bullying can have a fundamental and long-lasting effect on people (of all ages), and I feel that your post helps broaden understanding about the psychological and physiological effects for the person who has been bullied.

I was particularly struck by your point that it is, in part, the responsibility of the people who witness the bullying to speak up and support the person who is being bullied. What sort of approach do you feel might work well in these circumstances?

Thanks so much for sharing a really informative post, Jenny :)
