If you have been a victim of hate crime you may feel many emotions that you are not sure how to deal with.
These could be:
Emotional – Uncontrollable crying, agitation, restlessness, shame, fear, nightmares, numbness, guilt, frustration and hopelessness
Behavioural – deterioration in personal relationships, paranoid-like guardedness, avoidance, isolation, detachment and loss of identity.
You may also have physical injuries or financial losses as a result of the crime. For example, there may have been an assault, or your property may have been damaged.
