Researchers analyzed information from 5000 young people with lifetime histories of at least one of three types of abuse-psychological, physical, or sexual abuse. The psychological abuse included bullying, insults, overwhelming demands, and isolation. Those who experienced such psychological abuse had anxiety, depression , low self-esteem, PTSD, and suicidality at the same or greater rates than those physically or sexually abused.
