Bullying is a pervasive issue that affects people of all ages and genders. However, women who have experienced bullying may be at higher risk of developing trauma-related mental health issues. At Rising Roads, we recognize the negative psychological impact of bullying and provide comprehensive treatment programs for women who have experienced trauma as a result of being bullied.
The Psychological Impact of Bullying
Bullying, harassment, online bullying or cyber bullying can cause significant emotional and psychological distress that can have long-lasting effects on a person’s mental health. Women who have experienced bullying may develop anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), eating disorders and other mental health conditions that can interfere with their daily lives. Other common psychological effects of bullying in women include:
- Feelings of shame, guilt, and low self-esteem
- Anxiety and panic attacks
- Depression and suicidal ideation
- Anger, irritability, or rage
- Social withdrawal and isolation
- Trust issues and difficulty forming relationships
