Hampshire Multi-Agency Stalking Intervention Project

Hampshire Multi-Agency Stalking Intervention Project is a multi-disciplinary intervention service for individuals who are currently (or have recently) engaged in stalking behaviours.  It is a collaborative service involving Southern Health, Hampshire Constabulary, Hampshire & IOW Probation Teams, and Aurora New Dawn (victim advocacy). 

 

The service aims to reduce re-offending, maintain victim safety, and improve psychological wellbeing - through innovative consultation, assessment and intervention.  The Southern Health contingent consists of a Consultant Forensic Psychiatrist, a Clinical Psychologist, a Forensic Psychologist, an Assistant Psychologist and a Team Administrator.

The Hampshire Multi-Agency Stalking Intervention Project is unable to provide direct intervention to individuals currently under police investigation, but advice and consultation to those caring and managing them, can be offered.

The Hampshire Multi-Agency Stalking Intervention Project does not care co-ordinate.  The referring service needs to hold the case whilst intervention is provided.
