Minnesota Finds Harassment Linked With Cumulative Poor Wellbeing in Teens

New research from the University of Minnesota School of Public Health has found that in addition to harassment generating a host of negative health and wellbeing outcomes in teenagers, these risks are also cumulatively compounded for teens who experience different harassment types. The analysis was conducted as a follow-up to earlier Project EAT (Eating and Activity in Teens) research, which found that harassment on the basis of race, weight, socioeconomic status, and sex were highly prevalent among middle and high school age teens.
