Mental Disorders Linked With Domestic Violence, Study Says

(HealthDay News) — People diagnosed with mental illness are more likely than others to be victims of domestic violence, a new analysis finds.

Previous research has linked depression to domestic violence, but this review looks at a possible link between mental illness overall and domestic abuse in men and women.

“In this study, we found that both men and women with mental health problems are at an increased risk of domestic violence,” senior study author Louise Howard, a professor at King’s College London’s Institute of Psychiatry, said in a college news release.
