Expert Alert: Stopping Bullies at Schools, at Work and Online

Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR)

While schools and workplaces should be safe environments, at least 1 in 3 adolescent students have reported being bullied recently and 40% of Canadian workers have experienced bullying on a weekly basis. Repeated harassment in the forms of teasing, name calling, hitting and spreading rumours has a long-term impact on people’s physical and mental health. In fact, bullying can lead to anxiety, depression and even suicide in extreme cases. Cyberspace makes the problem of bullying even worse because it allows people to virtually harass others at home. Results from the 2009 General Social Survey on Victimization showed that 7% of adult Internet users in Canada, age 18 years and older, self-reported having been a victim of cyber-bullying at some point in their life.
