Bullied children suffer delusions1st May 2009
Research carried out at the University of Warwick has found that children who were bullied had twice the likelihood of suffering "psychotic" symptoms.
Those children who were targeted on a regular basis had four times the risk of delusions and paranoia. Prof Dieter Wolke, who led the study, said: "Our research shows that being victimised can have serious effects on altering perception of the world, such as hallucinations, delusions or bizarre thoughts where the person's insight into why this is happening is reduced."
