Stalking Advisory Service for Men
Stalking is a pattern of repeated, persistent and unwanted behaviour that is invasive and can generate fear. Stalking occurs when the stalker becomes fixated or obsessed. Stalkers can be male or female.
Stalking is a devastating crime and its impact can result in major life changes for the survivor. This includes, but is not limited to:
- Living in constant fear
- Invasion of privacy
- Threats of violence
- Loss of employment
- Having to move
- Isolation, unable to go out
- Depression, Anxiety & PTSD
- Potential physical injuries
The Stalking Advisory Service is a partnership of support services including Equation, Juno Women’s Aid, and Nottinghamshire Women’s Aid who specialise in supporting male and female victims and survivors of stalking aged 16 and over.
