Stalking is another form of harassment and is defined as persistent and unwanted attention that makes you feel pestered and harassed.  It includes behaviour that happens two or more times, directed at or towards you by another person, which causes you to feel alarmed or distressed or to fear that violence might be used against you.

Stalking can be particularly hard to cope with because it can go on for a long period of time, making you feel constantly anxious and afraid.  Sometimes the problem can build up slowly and it can take a while for you to realise that you are caught up in an ongoing campaign of abuse.  For more information and support see;
