As per the national Center for Education (http://www.pacer.org)
one out of every four students (22%) report being bullied during the school year. Students who experience bullying are at increased risk for poor school adjustment, greater risk for both mental health and behavior problems, anxiety, depression, academic problems, substance use, sleep difficulties and violent behavior later in adolescence and adulthood. One third of girls and one fourth of boys report weight-based teasing from peers, but prevalence rates increase to approximately 60% among the heaviest students.
84% of students observed students perceived as overweight are being bullied.
There is a strong association between bullying and suicide-related behaviors. Students victimized by their peers were 2.4 times more likely to report suicidal incidents and 3.3 times more likely to report a suicide attempt than youth who reported not being bullied.
