The association among bullying, suicide, and psychiatric illness is multifaceted and multidetermined. It is apparent that bullying involvement has complex and far-reaching impacts on bullies, victims, and bully-victims. This chapter examines the concurrent impact of psychiatric illness and bullying on youth, with particular emphasis on factors associated with suicidal ideation and behavior. Two perspectives are taken on this relationship: the influence of perceived psychiatric illness on bullying, and the impact of bullying involvement on later development of psychiatric symptoms. The inclusion of these two perspectives aims to address the multiple pathways by which bullying involvement and psychiatric symptoms interact. Risk and protective factors for bullying and psychiatric illness are reviewed, with emphasis on both individual and systemic factors. This chapter concludes with specific recommendations for mental health and medical providers, parents, teachers, and policy makers.
