Episodically homeless women with serious mental illness: prevalence of physical and sexual assault.

Author information

Department of Psychology, University of Maryland, College Park, USA.


Three aspects of physical and sexual assault in the histories of 99 episodically homeless, seriously mentally ill women were assessed: lifetime prevalence; severity, co-occurrence, and recency; and associations between levels of this victimization and specific characteristics of the women. Results indicate that the life-time risk for violent victimization was so high (97%) as to amount to normative experiences for this population.
