According to an announcement on the Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust website:
Stalking has been described as `psychological terrorism’ and involves the unwanted intrusion of one person into the life of another, causing fear and distress.
It is a crime which can escalate into tragedy. Stalking is recognised as a component in more than three quarters of cases involving people murdered by ex-partners which is sometimes referred to as `murder in slow motion.’
The website provides no information about what they’re actually going to do to treat stalkers. We’d love to know.
