My daughter was also severely bullied at JHS in Japan. She became suicidal and I had desperate moments trying to talk her out of jumping from the roof of our house. There three suicides of JHS students within an 8km radius of each other in 2015/2016. Her expensive private school in Miyazaki city tried to cover up the bullying. It wasn’t until I appealed to n prefectural government did the school even open up a meeting for parents of the class involved. It was all about protecting the schools image, the schools soccer team (who were the bullies) and keeping us quiet. My daughter was diagnosed with PTSD and the school accepted our insurance claims for hospital bills, therefore accepting responsibility. However....we still have no apologies from the two main bullies and their families. And my daughter still struggles with PTSD from school bullying.
