It is important that people support anti-bullying campaigns. There are several studies that show a link between bullying and suicide. When there is a case of suicide that can be linked back to bullying, it usually makes headline news.
Of course, not every child who was bullied turns to suicide. Bullying is usually not enough to make a child want to take their life. There are usually other issues that contribute to suicide, including problems at home, a history of trauma, and depression. Additionally, certain groups have been shown to be more vulnerable when it comes to bullying and suicide.
Anti-bullying campaigns must be supported by parents, schools, and peers. Bullying is not something that should be ignored. If a person is being bullied and if they feel that they are not supported, bullying can make an unsupportive situation worse. This is when it can result in suicide.
Bullying affects everyone. The person being bullied is affected. The person who is doing the bullying is affected. Bystanders who watch others being bullied can feel traumatized. Parents who do not know that their children are being bullied may feel at a loss as they see their children pull away from society, their friends, and their family. The parents may not know why and feel frustrated that all of their efforts to try to help their children are not working.
