Event details

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. 

“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
