the awareness for bullying has greatly risen in the recent times compared to a few years ago.it takes many forms,such a kids being shoved against lockers and many other immoral things.but bullying can be emphasized as a social ill.medical professionals view bullying as a public health issue.
Dr. Jorge Srabstein, medical director of the Clinic for Health Problems has for long put a lot of emphasised on the physical and psychological health effects of bullying to students in school.he says that ''Bullying affects kids involved in bullying as victims or proprietors or as both."Those bullied and their bullies alike complain of headaches and stomachaches, have difficulty falling asleep and fall victim to psychological symptoms, most notably depression and anxiety," Srabstein said.therefore i would consider bulling as a public health environmental issue.
