What is it about?

"Bullying is a significant issue among Indonesian adolescents. Our study found that about 20% of students were victims of bullying. Factors like age, gender, smoking, alcohol use, lack of close friends, and loneliness were linked to being bullied. Schools, health professionals, and policymakers should work together to tackle this problem and support students."
