Figure 0002: Interaction between workplace bullying and co-workers’ support with regard to mental health (total). Note: Low = –1 SD below mean; medium = at mean; high = 1 SD above mean.

Mentions: Moderated hierarchical regression analysis showed that individuals who perceived a high level of support from co-workers and low level of exposure to bullying reported worse mental health than individuals who reported their co-workers as less supporting and a high level of exposure to bullying (Figure 2). Scores were plotted at the mean, low (1 SD below the mean) and high (1 SD above the mean) values on the support from co-workers variable. The workplace bullying predictor scores were plotted at the low (1 SD below the mean) and high (1 SD above the mean) levels. The results in Figure 2 indicate a stronger relationship between bullying and mental health for the high (ß = .37, p < .001) and medium (ß = .30, p < .001) co-workers support groups than for the low co-workers support group (ß = .23, p < .001).Figure 2.
