As David Yamada, a bullying expert, states "
"Conditions at work, especially severe workplace bullying, have been linked to suicides and suicidal ideation."
- We know that 45 people (students and staff) have considered or attempted suicide because of the workplace bullying that they experienced at the University of Newcastle. Furthermore, suggestions are that the suicides that have occurred (stafff and students) at the University of Newcastle may have been related to bullying.
- We know that bullying continues at the University.
