Bullying is a form of abuse of a social power dynamic used against a person or group of people to cause intimidation or harm. When bullying occurs, there is often an imbalance in power between the two parties. Although it commonly occurs during childhood, bullying can affect anyone of any age, race, sexuality, class, or gender. 

Bullying may be persistent and can potentially cause serious psychological damage to the afflicted person or group. The long-term effects may involve low self-esteem, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or suicidal thoughts. The articles in the bullying advice section may help you learn how bullying affects others, understand why people bully, and learn positive coping strategies to combat this behavior.
