Some cyberbullies show signs of PTSD, according to a UK study

Treating teens who engage in cyberbullying or are victims of cyberbullying should be a community effort with schools and doctors working together, said Sameer Hinduja, co-director of the Cyberbullying Research Center.

(CNN)Cyberbullying is linked to a variety of post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms, not only in victims but cyberbullies as well, according to a new study of over 2,000 UK teens.

Over a quarter of cyberbullies suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms, the study, published Tuesday in the Archives of Disease in Childhood Journal, found.
Clinical psychologist Ana Pascual-Sánchez, one of the authors of the study at Imperial College London, said her team was surprised by those results.
