This review paper investigated the effects of violence by people with mental health problems. It briefly considered the link between mental illness and violence, before reviewing the literature on the targets of violence from people with mental health problems, concurrently addressing methodological limitations. Family members and/or caregivers are often the victims of violent behaviour from individuals with mental health problems. The effects of this violence were reviewed, integrating findings from the literature on the effects of violent crime on individuals, the effects of domestic violence and the family burden literature. The conclusions drawn referred to the likely individual mental health needs of intrafamilial victims of violence and the possible impact of violence on ongoing familial relationships, whilst highlighting recommendations for future research.
