B ULLYING may be responsible for nearly 30 per cent of cases of depression among adults, a new study suggests. By tracking 2,668 people from early childhood through adulthood, researchers found 13- year- olds who were frequent targets of bullies were three times more likely than their non- victimized peers to be depressed as adults. Even when the researchers accounted for factors such as a teen’s record of behavioural problems, social class, child abuse and family history of depression, those who were bullied at least once a week were more than twice as likely to be depressed when they grew up. The findings — published Tuesday in the BMJ , a weekly medical journal published in the U. K. — should prompt parents, teachers and public health authorities to get serious about cracking down on bullying, the study’s authors wrote. “ Depression is a major public- health problem worldwide, with high social and economic costs,” they wrote. “ Interventions during adolescence could help to reduce the burden or depression later in life.” Previous studies that examined the link between bullying and depression have determined the two are related. For example, adults who are depressed are more likely to recall being bullied as kids. But perhaps adults without depression were bullied as well but have put the abuse out of their minds. To get around that problem, a group of researchers from four universities in England turned to data from the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children. Some of the study participants were recruited into the study before they were even born; others joined when they were about seven years old. The administrators kept track of all kinds of information about the kids and their families, and they asked questions about bullying multiple times between the ages of eight and 13. For this study, the researchers focused on peer victimization at age 13. At the time, the teens were asked about nine types of bullying and whether they experienced them “ frequently” ( at least once a week), “ repeatedly” ( at least four times altogether), “ sometimes” ( less than four times) or not at all. Name- calling was the most common type of bullying, with 36 per cent of teens saying they had been on the receiving end of this behaviour ( including nine per cent who were victimized frequently). And 22 per cent of the kids said bullies had taken their possessions. Beyond that, 16 per cent of the teens said bullies had spread lies about them; 11 per cent said they had been hit or beaten up; 10 per cent were shunned by their peers; nine per cent said they had been blackmailed; eight per cent said bullies tried to get them to do something they didn’t want to do; eight per cent said they had been tricked; and five per cent said bullies had spoiled a game to upset them. Most of this bullying was never reported to teachers, and the 13- year- olds didn’t even tell their families approximately one- third of the time. Not only did the researchers confirm victims of bullying were at greater risk for depression as adults, they also found a dose- response relationship between the two. In other words, the more bullying a 13- year- old had to endure, the greater the odds he or she would be depressed years later. Among teens who said they weren’t bullied at all, five per cent went on to suffer depression. But among the teens who were frequent victims, 15 per cent were depressed as adults. What’s more, 10 per cent of the frequent bullying victims had been depressed for more than two years, compared with four per cent of their counterparts who weren’t bullied at all. The results offer support for the idea bullying during childhood leads to depression in adulthood, but they don’t prove one causes the other. Nailing that down would require an experiment that randomly assigned some people to be bullied and others to be left alone. “ These findings lead us to conclude that peer victimization during adolescence may contribute significantly to the overall public health burden of clinical depression,” the study’s authors wrote. — Los Angeles Times By Karen Kaplan Depression has deep roots Study links disorder to childhood bullying .
