Improving Services & Outcomes for People who Self Harm

Friday 18 October 2019
De Vere West One Conference Centre, London

“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 improving services and outcomes for people who self-harm including 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
