Professor Keith Hawton and his team from the University of Oxford investigate how best to prevent self-harm, particularly in high risk groups. Any changes in the prevalence of deliberate self-harm can have important clinical implications for both general medical and psychiatric services.
Their research feeds into a wealth of public resources which are constantly being revised to offer the latest guidance.
Recent resources produced in conjunction with Oxford Health Foundation Trust include:
- Free downloadable Guide for Parents and Carers of young people who have self-harmed.
- Descriptions of parent experiences for parents and carers of young people who have self-harmed, including video and audio clips illustrating their stories. This was developed in collaboration with Healthtalk.org.
