Abstract

The present study aimed to investigate the association between cyberbullying victimization, anxiety, depression, and self-esteem among university students. A total of 400 participants completed a self-report questionnaire that included measures of cyberbullying victimization, anxiety, depression, and self-esteem. Results showed that cyberbullying victimization was significantly positively correlated with anxiety and depression, and significantly negatively correlated with self-esteem. Furthermore, anxiety and depression were found to partially mediate the relationship between cyberbullying victimization and self-esteem, indicating that cyberbullying victimization may lead to lower self-esteem via increased anxiety and depression. These findings highlight the importance of addressing cyberbullying victimization in university settings to promote the mental health and well-being of students.
