    Hi @taylorsue

    This sounds awful, I'm so sorry you're going through this. They shouldn't be allowed to make your lives a misery. Being targeted like this because of mental health sounds like a hate crime. What have the police said?

    Could you escalate with the housing association - if you're not getting the support you need - you can make a complaint. You can also report to your local authority. Most even have online forms that you can report anti-social behaviour with. 

    There's an organisation called Victim Support which offer support:

    The other thing I'd recommend is calling Scope's helpline - 0808 800 3333. You're in a very stressful situation - and they might be able to take you through the different options available in a way which is hard for us to do online.

    I hope things improve for you.

    Have got housing assoc involved and they are going to help, police a waste of time, have got a cctv system installed today and have sent daughter to get a rest and a break from it to a family member.
