Teens With Depression More Likely To Be Bullied

It is widely assumed that bullying leads to depression in children and teens, however new research from Arizona State University suggests the opposite could also be true. Teens who are depressed have greater difficulty in developing peer relationships, and this can often lead to bullying. The authors suggest parents and teachers look for signs of depression within children and understand that depression can be a significant risk factor for negative peer based relationships.
