Responding to the rising prevalence of self-harm

Detailed description

Young people who self-harm have substantially increased risk of adverse non-fatal and fatal outcomes, including suicide, compared with those who do not self-harm . The frequency of young people presenting to general practices and emergency departments after self-harm has increased in the past 20 years in England and Australia. However, people who present to medical services after self-harm differ from those who do not, and most people who self-harm do not seek medical attention. Thus, whether this increase in presentation reflects a true rise in the prevalence of self-harm remains unclear.
