Physical harassment is the most known type of bullying, except in North America and Europe, where psychological harassment is most common. Sexual harassment is the second most common form of bullying in many areas. School violence and harassment affects boys as well as girls. Physical harassment is more common among boys, while psychological harassment is more prevalent among girls. It should be noted that online and mobile harassment is on the rise.
It has been shown that half of young people who are exposed to school violence as victims or abusers will have mental health problems in adulthood.
More than ever, schools need to invest in educational measures that enable youth to develop emotional and relationship skills to create positive, egalitarian and caring environments for all.
