"It is vital we have the right services in place when children, young people or indeed adults need them. But this must be combined with greater public understanding of the reasons why someone might self-harm and how to get help." Dr Jacqueline Cornish, national clinical director for children and young people at NHS England

This conference focuses on improving services and outcomes for people who self harm. The conference opens with a presentation from a lived experience perspective of how we can improve services, build understanding and encourage people to talk about self harm. The conference will continue through national updates and practical case studies to demonstrate how the pathway for those who self harm can be improved from identification and early intervention,  improving services for those in crisis and presenting in emergency departments, developing effective services and working with people to improve coping strategies, to reducing suicide, mitigating risk and managing the impact of self harm.
