The impact of stalking on a victim is huge; anxiety, depression, PTSD to name a few and some victims are driven to suicide by the relentless terror. It is not always ex-partners who are the perpetrators.

There doesn’t have to be any physical violence to have an impact – a common myth. As I mentioned in a previous post, I had to fight to get treatment, in fact, to get assessed! I was then diagnosed with severe PTSD amongst other things.

This should not be the case.

From research I did with the University of Leicester in 2005 (when I set up a Stalking Awareness Month aligned with the US), we found that an AVERAGE of 21 people around the primary victim were affected by the stalker. How much damage is being done? And what resources are there to help?
