Hundred Families

Over a hundred families in Britain have a loved one killed by a person with mental illness every year.
Many of these deaths could be avoided had the offender received better care and treatment. But the evidence shows mental health services often fail to learn effectively from these tragedies.
The same problems keep re-occurring and innocent people are losing their lives unnecessarily.
We want to change this.
We support victims’ families and work with the NHS and others to effect change.
