The aim of the present study is to investigate the impact of mental health on bullying (i.e.
bullies and bully-victims) among adolescents. 300 adolescent boys (150 bullies and 150
bully-victims) were taken as a sample. Purposive sampling is used for the collection of
data. Boys within the age range of 15 to 18 years are taken as participants. A sample
