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.

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.
