Abstract

Bullying has been defined as a person or several people who were affected negatively by another individual or group over and over again (Olweus, 2013). It has been reported that both the victims and perpetrators of bullying are more likely to have suicidal ideation and other suicidal behaviours. Moreover, bullying can be a precursor for school violence and can contribute to poor academic performance. The purpose of the study tends to raise awareness on the subject among teachers, parents, and people who work for school health and administrators on the prevalence and factors associated with bullying among adolescents in China. It should lead to efforts to establish courses and polices for school health and youth health. It should also help to establish trends in the prevalence of bullying actions.
