This report documents the far-reaching effects of bullying, from further acts of crime and violence in adolescence and adulthood by its perpetrators, to loneliness, depression, and suicidal tendencies felt by its victims. Bullying prevention programs based on scientifically based results are highlighted for their potential to effectively deliver results at relatively low costs, when compared to costs of special education, future crime, and even death.
