“Self-harm - intentional self-poisoning or self-injury - in children and adolescents is a major public health issue in countries across the world. Experts acknowledge self-harm as the biggest risk factor for subsequent suicide. Suicide is now the second most common cause of death in the under 25s worldwide.” www.manchester.ac.uk

Chaired by Sarah Hughes, Chief Executive, The Centre for Mental Health this conference will focus on improving services and outcomes for people who self harm. National updates including presentations from Sara Saunders, Programme Manager Child & Adolescent Mental Health Policy and Strategy, NHS England, and Jess Barrett, Lead Researcher and Developer, National Collaborating Centre for Mental Health, Royal College of Psychiatrists, and practical case studies will look at; how the pathway for those who self harm can be improved from identification and early intervention with partnership working; improving services for those in crisis; developing effective services and working with people to improve coping strategies to reducing suicide and reducing stigma; and mitigating risk and managing the impact of self harm. There will also be a presentation from a lived experience perspective of how we can improve services, build understanding and encourage people to talk about self harm.
