Patients with mental illness as victims of homicide

Project Details


In this study we aimed to establish how many victims and perpetrators of homicide, involved in the same offence, were patients with mental illness and to describe their social, offence and clinical characteristics in order to identify any factors related to the offence that could inform prevention.

The study was commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) and concluded in March 2012.

Findings from the study were published in the Lancet Psychiatry.
