(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A new study took a look at the long-term effects of bullying.

The study shows that child bullying can affect people long into adulthood.

Researchers at Duke University found that bullied children are more likely to have anxiety disorders, depression, and suicidal thoughts as adults.

Kids who were bullies also were at an increased risk of developing anti-social personality disorders years later.
