Slide Stalking STALKING Stalking is a pattern of repeated,
unwanted behaviour that causes you
to feel distressed or scared.

It is a psychological and a physical crime.

Stalking often has a huge emotional impact on those it affects.

It can lead to feelings of depression, anxiety and even post-traumatic stress disorder.

Stalking can happen with or without a fear of violence. This means that if you are receiving persistent unwanted contact that is causing you distress, but the person has never threatened you, this is still stalking and is not acceptable.

The Suzy Lamplugh Trust is a leading national charity that works with those impacted by stalking.  They define this as
‘A pattern of fixated and obsessive behaviour which is repeated, persistent, intrusive and causes fear of violence or engenders alarm and distress in the victim.’

Here are some examples of stalking:

Making malicious communication

Sending unwanted cards, notes, gifts or flowers

Damaging property

Following you and monitoring your movements

some of our survivors have told us ‘I couldn’t put my finger on it’.

It can also be clear that you are being stalked, you know and you see but sometimes are just not heard.
