This study investigates the associations between bullying, violence and other risk and protective factors that contribute to poor mental health among in-school adolescent girls and boys (age 13–17). It analyses data from six countries from different regions around the world—Cambodia, El Salvador, Ghana, Iraq, Maldives, and Swaziland—that participated in the Global School-based Student Health Survey (GSHS) between 2009 and 2013.
