In brief: Just one is too many

We don't have an exact number. In the US suicide is the third leading cause of death amongst teenagers and adolescents.
A British study reported 44% of suicides occurring in kids 10 to 14 was caused by bullying. Those bullied often remain silent until the emotional trauma is eventually no longer tolerable. Cyberbullying is a particularly malignant form of bullying.
