Abstract

In 2006 the Department of Health introduced routine enquiry about peoples’ experience of violence and abuse as part of adult mental health assessments. This was in response to evidence that such experience was a significant aspect of the histories and difficulties of many service users. This research extends the evidence base by showing how mental illness is linked with experience of abuse and violence. It is based on a representative community-based sample rather than a patient population and examines experiences of both women and men across the life course.
