Bullying causes or worsens feelings of rejection, despair, isolation, exclusion, anxiety, and depression, which contribute to suicide (Stopbullying.gov, 2021). The link between suicidal ideation and bullying is mediated by numerous factors, including abuse, depression, isolation, anxiety, low self-esteem, and poor school performance (Alavi et al., 2017). Therefore, the risk for suicidal ideation resulting from bullying is higher when co-existing risk factors are present.
