Bullying, the takeoff of depression
Bullying can trigger serious problems as depression and potential suicide.
Shana Friedman, Psychotherapist at Baptist Health South Florida, says children don't show depression the same way as adults do, but that is not true. Children with depression might show anxiety and irritability that can be confused with the typical feelings of teenage adjustment.
Psychotherapist Aimee Hernandez highlights the loss of interest in activities as an important symptom of bullying, because the child does not want to be exposed to the bully any longer.
