Clusters of Contemporary Risk and Their Relationship to Mental Well-Being Among 15-Year-Old Adolescents Across 37 CountriesAdolescents' mental well-being has become a growing public health concern. Adolescents' daily lives and their engagement in risks have changed dramatically in the course of the 21st century, leading to a need to update traditional models of risk to include new exposures and behaviors. To date, studies have examined the relationship between (mainly traditional) risk behaviors and adolescent mental well-being or looked at risk factors that jeopardize mental well-being such as lack of social support but have not combined them together to highlight the most significant risks for adolescent mental well-being today.
Suicidal Ideation and School Bullying Experiences After Controlling for Depression and DelinquencyThis cross-sectional study examines differences in the frequency of suicidal ideation and suicidal behaviors across a group of verbal bullies, bully-victims, victims, physically aggressive bullies, and students not involved in bullying.
Psychological, Physical, and Academic Correlates of Cyberbullying and Traditional BullyingTo examine the relationship between children's and adolescents' experiences with cyberbullying and traditional bullying and psychological health, physical health, and academic performance.
Potential Suicide Ideation and Its Association With Observing Bullying at SchoolTo explore those contextual factors that predict potential suicide ideation among students who observe bullying at school.
Suicidal Thinking and Behavior Among Youth Involved in Verbal and Social Bullying: Risk and Protective FactorsTo identify risk and protective factors associated with thinking about or attempting suicide among youth involved in verbal and social bullying.
Suicidal Adolescents’ Experiences With Bullying Perpetration and Victimization during High School as Risk Factors for Later Depression and SuicidalityThis is the first study to examine the extent to which frequent involvement in high-school bullying (as a bullying perpetrator, victim of bullying, or bully-victim) increases the risk for later depression and suicidality beyond other well-established risk factors of suicide. The study included 96 students who reported being a bully, a victim, or a bully-victim, and also reported depression, suicidality, or substance problems during an initial suicide screen. These students were interviewed 2 years later and were compared with 142 youth identified during the initial screen as “suicide-at-risk” by virtue of their depression, suicidal ideation, attempts, and substance problems, but who did not report any involvement in bullying behavior.
