Report: Nearly Half of Teens at ER Report Peer Violence, Cyberbullying


A new study by the Hasbro ChildrenĀ“s Hospital in Rhode Island found that nearly half of teens seen in the emergency department for any reason report peer violence and nearly 50 percent also report being the victims of cyberbullying.

One quarter of teens surveyed during the study said they have suffered from symptoms consistent with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The study surveyed 353 teenagers between the ages of 13 and 17 seeking care at the ER between Aug. 2013 and March 2014.

The American Association of Pediatrics recently suggested that emergency departments should screen adolescents for psychiatric disorders starting at age 11.
