The differences between harassment and bullying are difficult to separate in most incidences and can overlap.  Most times harassment can result in a single or small number of incidents, whereas bullying tends to be the accumulation of multiple incidents and over a longer period of time.

Harassment and discrimination can result in both physical and mental health problems, and may include some of the following:

  • Increased levels of stress, anxiety and depression
  • Heightened nervousness and being constantly on edge
  • Hypersensitivity
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Exhaustion and fatigue
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Insomnia and sleep disorders
  • Increased illnesses, such as colds and flu
  • Poor concentration and forgetfulness
  • Post traumatic stress disorder

 

Most would agree that everyone should be able to work and live without fear of violence or harassment; however discrimination and harassment occur at an alarming and growing rate and are often ignored.
