About this title


People who self-harm are much more likely to commit suicide than the general population.
Guideline aims to improve the longer-term care of people who self-harm after initial treatment of the injury or poisoning.
Sets out clear recommendations for healthcare staff (based on the best available evidence) on how to manage both single and recurrent episodes of self-harm.
The guideline reviews the evidence for comprehensive assessment, psychosocial and pharmacological interventions for both the self-harm and for any associated psychiatric conditions,
Commissioned by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE).
The CD-ROM contains all of the evidence on which the recommendations are based, presented as profile tables (that analyse quality of data) and forest plots (plus, info on using/interpreting forest plots).
This material is not available in print anywhere else.


Primarily, all healthcare professionals in secondary care (both hospital medical care and mental health services). Secondarily, general practitioners (family doctors).
