This section contains information on 1810 cases of mental health related killings in Britain between 1993-2020, all collected from press reports and official documents.
They are a considerable underestimate of the total as not every case is reported or known publicly.
This section aims to provide brief details on mental health homicides in any given area along with information about any previous official inquiries or investigations.
The information is broken down by former NHS Strategic Health Authority region.
The cases also link to 713 official investigations – internal and independent inquiries, case reviews, sentencing remarks, court and coroner’s reports – which are all downloadable without charge from this site.
They represent the largest and most comprehensive publicly available collection of such investigations in the country.
Information on other cases, or copies of any other inquiry reports, particularly in an electronic format are welcomed.
