Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -- Mental disorders plague many adults who were bullied as children. But did you know children who bully are much more likely to have a mental disorder?
Researchers at Brown University studied children who were either identified as having a mental health disorder or identified as a bully. They found those who were considered the bullies were more than twice as likely to experience depression, anxiety and attention deficit disorder.
They were also six times more likely to be diagnosed with oppositional defiant disorder, characterized by ongoing episodes of anger and hostility, especially toward authority figures, such as parents, teachers or other adults.
