How we make a difference

“It is easier to find information [on the hundred families website] than the current NHS information systems relating to these tragic incidents.” Head of Safety, NHS mental health trust, 20 September 2014

 

We’ve helped over 70 families with support, information and advocacy after killings by people with mental illness.
