53% of women aged 18-23 report being bullied

Recent research shows that 53 per cent of women aged 18 – 23 reported having been bullied in the past, and 18 per cent said they had been bullied recently.
Women who were bullied were at risk of poor physical health, psychological distress, suicidal thoughts and self-harm, say the authors.

Those who were victims had lower levels of education and were less likely to be studying or employed or have active lifestyles.

An earlier study in 2015 showed 30% of depression in early adulthood could be attributable to bullying in teenage years adding that bullying could make a substantial contribution to the overall burden of depression.
