  • On average, 64% of the victims have been bullied at school. The rate of discrimination experienced among students who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans-identified, Two-Spirited, Queer or Questioning (LGBTQ) is three times higher than heterosexual youth.
  • On average, girls are more likely to be bullied on the Internet than boys will ever be. Children who are bullied suffer more headaches, stomach aches, depression and anxiety.
  • Mental health problems associated with bullying tend to last later in life. In many cases, those who bully others often experience abuse or other sorts of bullying at home.
