Bullying Victimization Among Children With Mental, Emotional, Developmental, or Behavioral Problems: A US Population-Based Study
Bullying victimization among children remains a pervasive problem. Bullying victimization can make it difficult for children with psychiatric problems to cope and might result in worsened outcomes.1,2 Bullying victimization in children is associated with increased risk of anxiety, depression, sleep difficulties, lower academic achievement, and dropping out of school.3 We hypothesized that vulnerable children with mental, emotional, developmental, or behavioral (MEDB) problems may be at increased risk of bullying victimization. Thus, we aim to identify the prevalence and odds of bullying victimization among US children with 1 or more MEDB problems compared to children without.
