Group bullying is common in adolescence and may cause significant function loss. In this article, we present a 14-year-old adolescent student in the ninth grade who was exposed to group bullying from his classmates. The case was diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, specific learning disorder, and mood disorder. Formulation of the case was discussed in the context of conflicts, dynamics, and psychiatric disorders in a con- crete group bullying-victimization. Interventions should be performed quickly, appropriately, and convincingly in adolescents who are exposed to bullying, particularly in presence of life-threatening behaviors.
