80%-90% of pre-adolescents and adolescents experience physical and psychological symptoms as a result of being the bullied at school.
Bullying may be physical (punching, kicking, spitting, sexual assault), verbal (name calling, racial slurs, threatening comments), or psychological (spreading rumors, manipulating relationships, intimidating).
