Bullying is a worldwide problem with serious consequences. It is a complex form of interpersonal aggression influenced by multiple factors. Bullying is common with approximately one out of every three children and adolescents being impacted by it. Many risk factors for victimisation have been identified including perception of being different (i.e., disability, obesity, non-conforming gender orientation, migrant status); family dynamics; school environment; and social skills/support. Victimisation has been linked to many short- and long-term consequences including social, emotional, physical, and cognitive influences. Since bullying victimisation has been identified as a significant international public health issue, continued efforts toward prevention and intervention are warranted.
