Bullied preemies may develop mental illness as adults, study shows

A new study on adult mental health included extremely low birth weight babies who were 2.2 pounds or less at their birth between 1977 and 1982 in Ontario. These adults were interviewed at age 8, 22 to 26 and 29 to 36. Their mental health was compared to normal birth weight babies of 5.5 pounds or more who were born in the same time span and interviewed at the same intervals.
