CONCLUSIONS: The study demonstrates that an available measure of genetic risk for schizophrenia is robustly associated with schizophrenia in health care settings and has pleiotropic effects on related psychiatric disorders as well as other medical syndromes.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the current state of news media coverage of bullying and cyberbullying. A sample of news...
