Victim Support Chief Executive Javed Khan has called for an "urgent" debate into how best to reform the justice system, after a report found those with mental health problems were up to ten times more likely to become victims of crime. He responded to today's report, saying:
"It is nothing short of a national scandal that some of the most vulnerable people in our society become victims of crime so often and yet when they seek help they are met with disbelief or even blame.
"It is unacceptable that the criminal justice system fails to meet the needs of people with mental health problems when this report shows all too clearly the terrible impact of crime on them."
