Another tragic example of what bullying does to teens is topping headlines. Jadin Bell, 15, of La Grande, Or, hanged himself from a piece of playground equipment.
Doctors took him off life support earlier this week.
A family friend of Bell says bullies tormented him, both in person and online, for being gay.

Out of the Closet
Coming out is good for your health.

It also showed that gay guys have less stress and depression than straight guys, too.
