Secret Service on Mass Murders

MASS ATTACKS IN PUBLIC SPACES - 2017

MENTAL HEALTH: Nearly two-thirds of the attackers (n = 18, 64%) experienced mental health symptoms prior to their attacks. The most common symptoms observed were related to psychosis (e.g., paranoia, hallucinations, or delusions) and suicidal thoughts (see Table 1). Further, some attackers (n = 7, 25%) had been hospitalized for treatment or prescribed psychiatric medications prior to their attacks
