Many studies have shown that victimization from bullying behavior is related to the harmful psychological problems. It is vital for teachers today to understand and recognize these psychological effects that may be caused from bullying behavior. Psychological effects such as depression, anxiety, decline in self-esteem and suicidal ideation can be detrimental to a student's performance in school. This research explores these psychological health effects through scientific studies, student analysis and peer group observation. My extensive research shows that bullying does have psychological effects on a student's health and should not be recognized universally so that students may excel academically without psychological health limitations instigated by bullying victimization.
