New report published by NSUN – read the report and download in alternative languages
These resources are for anyone who has experienced abuse, victimisation or hate crime directed at them because of their mental distress or psychiatric diagnosis. They are based on research carried out at Middlesex University. The aim is to share some of our research findings with you and to give you ideas and suggestions about what you can do if you have experienced this kind of abuse.
Listen to interviews
We have organised the report in four parts:
- What people told us
- What people found helpful
- What you can do if you have experienced abuse or believe you have been a victim of hate crime
- Sources of help
