Bullying's Health Effects Can Last Into Adulthood, Study Says

Bullying's Health Effects Can Last Into Adulthood, Study Says

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

We know the kind of physical, emotional and mental trauma a child endures when he or she is bullied. But a new study finds the harmful effects can be seen long into adulthood.

The study found childhood bullying can lead to illness, poor relationships and job problems.

Victims who turn into bullies had the greatest risk of adult health problems, while victims, bullies and bully-victims are more likely to be poor.

However, researchers concluded being a bully had little impact in adulthood.

Joining "Good Day Philadelphia" Friday morning to discuss what researchers found was Dr. Jennifer Caudle, from Rowan University.
