We know that victims of stalking experience psychological trauma including: 

  • Denial, confusion, self-doubt, questioning if what is happening is unreasonable, wondering if they are over-reacting
  • Depression (all symptoms related to depression)

  • Anxiety, panic attacks, agoraphobia (frightened to leave the house, never feeling safe)

  • Difficulty concentrating, attending and remembering things

  • Inability to sleep – nightmares, ruminating

  • Symptoms of Post-traumatic Stress disorder e.g. hypervigilance (always on the lookout), flashbacks of frightening incidents, easily startled

  • Self-medication alcohol/ drugs or using prescribed medications

  • Suicide thoughts and/or suicide attempts

We also know that stalking behaviours were present in 94% of homicide cases showing the extreme impact on victims' physical and mental wellbeing.
