Students in high school are in a critical stage of developing their social identity and negative constructs such as depression and alienation are a frequent problem occurring in such social arenas. Research on the matters show that adolescents are especially vulnerable to alienation and depression, however, what enforces these feelings are not properly understood. In this paper an investigation of factors contributing to alienation and depression by going through research on sexual harassment and bullying as possible enforcers is pursued. Findings suggest that research connecting alienation and depression is limited and that sexual harassment and bullying are important factors contributing to feelings of both alienation and depression. Further studies on this matters may contribute to the knowledge of the relationship between these constructs.
