“Self-harm is a way of expressing very deep distress. Often, people don't know why they self-harm.” Mind

Self-harm should always be taken seriously, as it will inevitably reflect an attempt to manage a high level of psychological distress.” Self Harm and Suicide Prevention Competence Framework October 2018

“About 1 in 10 young people will self-harm at some point, but it can happen at any age. The research probably under-estimates how common self-harm is. It is usually based on surveys of people who go to hospital or their GP after harming themselves. However, we know that a lot of people do not seek help after self-harm. Some types of self-harm, like cutting, may be more secret and so less likely to be noticed.” The Royal College of Psychiatrists

This conference focuses on the important issue of improving services and outcomes for people who self-harm with a focus on implementing the October 2018 Self-Harm and Suicide Prevention Competence Framework in practice.

“The framework describes the various activities that need to be brought together to support people who self-harm and/or are suicidal. It is not intended to prescribe what should be done, rather it makes suggestions about best practice in the light of our current knowledge of the effectiveness of approaches and interventions.” Self-harm and Suicide Prevention Competence Framework

“All work with people who self-harm and/or are suicidal should be undertaken collaboratively. This means developing trusting working relationships from the outset that enable people to make choices and share decision making around the way they wish to be supported, empowering individuals and helping them feel that they have control over their life and any decisions that are made about them.” Self Harm and Suicide Prevention Competency Framework October 2018
