The impact of bullying on mental health shows a concerning trend, most notably amongst the LGBT+ community. A staggering 31 per cent had attempted suicide as a result of being bullied, with 51 per cent admitting to self harming.

Ten per cent of respondents said bullying was happening on a daily basis. Over half of the young people said they thought they were being bullied solely because of their appearance, while one in five said they were accused of being gay or lesbian when they aren't.

Which, in case you're wondering, is absolutely horrifying.
