Research seminar: At risk, yet dismissed - the criminal victimisation of people with mental health problems

Public perception is that people with mental health problems are offenders, and historically, policy, research and clinical practice has focused on the risk they pose to others. However, in recent years a body of work has explored the victimisation of people with mental health problems and the impact it has on them.

The mixed methods study, that will be discussed, was designed to understand experiences of victimisation and engagement with the criminal justice system among people with mental health problems.

The research was conducted by a partnership of Victim Support, the Institute of Psychiatry at King's College London, Mind and St George's University of London and Kingston University, in collaboration with University College London, funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the Medical Research Council.

This is a lunchtime seminar so please feel free to bring your lunch with you.

If you would like to come along and find out more about this study, please RSVP to Nikita Monteiro at n.monteiro@sgul.kingston.ac.uk by Monday 17 February 2014.

If you are interested in presenting a future research seminar, please contact Gill Mein at g.mein@sgul.kingston.ac.uk.
