||A large greater Paris hospital set up a unit specializing in the treatment of victims of bullying. This study examined the social and employment outcomes of the 202 patients who consulted the unit between January 2000 and December 2002. Data were collected during the examinations of the patients as well as by means of questionnaires addressed to the patients three months after the first consultation. A poor medical, social and employment prognosis was found, with loss of employment and often prolonged sickness absenteeism. The study also highlights the importance of organizational factors in causing mental health changes at work. It concludes that the best prospects of effective primary prevention involve acting on organizational factors.
