Young Victims of Cyberbullying Twice as Likely to Attempt Suicide


From Medical Xpress: A new study found that children and young people under 25 who experience cyberbullying are more than twice as likely to attempt suicide and self-harm than non-victims. Perpetrators of cyberbullying are also at risk for experiencing suicidal thoughts and behaviors.

  1. I have been cyberbullied as a semi-senior (over 55, under 65). I learned that there was nothing under law that I could do about it, since I am not a minor nor a college student. I know that the person/people were likely hired. I suspect they were trying to induce emotional distress, possibly suicide. They did not succeed, not even close. The bullying stopped abruptly and I never discovered the source. I have since found out that I am not alone, that other fully grown adults (often, writers like myself) have had this happen and there’s little recourse. I also suspect the intent, in the case of other bullying incidents, was to induce a suicide or induce an attempt. If it is any comfort, MLK had the same thing happen. They tried it on him, too.
