Children that move schools frequently and are up rooted from their friends have a higher rate of mental health disorders according to a recent research study. Further over 6500 children that were involved in the research had a higher rate of Psychosis, delusional thinking, hearing voices, seeing things that were not present etc.

According to the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry children that moved schools more than three times had a sixty percent higher rate of mental health issues like psychosis.

There is a great deal of stress having to switch into a new environment. Meeting new friends and being accepted into social situations is very important for a teen child. Many children are not accepted and are bullied because they are new and this is very problematic and impacts a child’s self esteem, mood, and behaviors in a very negative way.

Bullying is widespread among children and teens. According to previous studies, almost 50 percent of kids in grades 4 to 12 reported being bullied within the previous month. Nearly one-third said they were bullies themselves.

The new results, published March 10 in the journal JAMA Pediatrics, are based on 43 previous studies. They don’t confirm that bullying directly pushes kids to be suicidal, however. It’s possible that the connection is more complex, or even that suicidal kids are more likely to be bullied, the researchers said.

In general, the studies found that bullies and bully-victims — people who bully others and are bullied themselves — are at higher risk of suicidal thoughts and suicide attempts.Feelings of isolations  impact a child’s brain that increase the potential for psychotic symptomology. Having quality friendships is vital for a teen and his development. Schools need to make an effort to welcome new children in the school and allow them time to meet peers to help them with this huge social adjustment. Most schools fail in this category and this must be addressed for a child’s physical and mental well being.
