Further: Is the ansatz that harrassing behaviour is a sign of poor mental
health on the part of the harrasser commonly accepted? A quick google turns
up more hits about research showing mental health effects of harrassment on
the harrassed person(s).
If within 'mental health' you include the concept of thriving, then it
might be useful to look at resources like "Net Smart: How to Thrive Online"
by Howard Rheingold.
It's not research in a peer reviewed sense but maybe this should be added
to the recommended reading list:

Nothing comes to mind. Although there's been a good deal of high-profile
research on editor motivation, which should be discoverable via Google
And I see there's currently a research project written up on Meta
that proposes to evaluate editors based on
the Big 5 Personality
questionnaire. However, probably no one should participate in that study;
they don't say anything about what they're going to do with the survey data
you give them :/
You might look through previous projects and project proposals written up
on the Research Index <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Research:Projects>,
and also in the Research newsletter
