In this broad representative sample of adolescents aged 15-17 years approximately one in ten reported a previous episode of DSH of whom 45.9% had done so more than once. The lifetime prevalence of DSH of 9.1% is higher compared to the prevalence of deliberate self harm reported in previous Irish school-based studies [5-7], which can be explained by the use of a broader definition of self harming behaviour in the present study. Only 11.3% of teenagers who harmed themselves attended hospital and fewer sought help from other medical services following their episode of DSH, findings which are consistent with other Irish studies [9, 10]. Given this tendency for adolescents not to seek help and that most studies investigating deliberate self harm are based on hospital treated cases of deliberate self harm [11], previous estimates of the extent of deliberate self harm may have been underestimated.. The one-year prevalence rate based on the study definition criteria was 5.7%. Considering their lifetime ...
The aim of this cross-sectional 1-year study was to estimate the prevalence and to identify the risk factors for suicidal and self-injurious behaviours among patients with depression. A convenience sample of 557 out- and inpatients diagnosed with mood disorders was selected from 3 treatment settings in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Eligible patients completed data on sociodemographic variables and the Columbia suicide severity rating scale risk assessment version. The reported prevalence of attempted suicide in the previous week was 36.6%, interrupted suicide attempt 29.8%, aborted suicide attempt 34.6% and self-injurious behaviour without suicide intent 7.7%. Concerning suicide ideation, 47.2% reported suicidal thoughts, 36.6% suicidal thoughts with methods but without a specific plan and 35.4% suicidal intent without a specific plan. Male sex, joint family type, literate education, being in employment, smoking and physical co-morbidities were significantly associated with all types of suicide ...
The intention of this study was to investigate the cessation of non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI): How and why individuals with a past history of NSSI stopped engaging in the behaviour. To meet this aim, two comprehensive literature reviews were performed examining factors of cessation drawn from previous NSSI literature and from substance abuse and eating disorder literature. An online survey was created to ascertain which variables were endorsed by a sample population of individuals who have successfully resolved NSSI (n = 49). The results identified specific factors and underlying mechanisms associated with cessation, including the motivation to change, maturational factors, relational ties, natural recovery and internal strategies utilized to reduce NSSI. Recommendations for future research and treatment implications are provided. Given the high prevalence of NSSI and the scarcity of research focusing on the cessation of NSSI, the information gleaned from this thesis may assist counsellors in ...
BACKGROUND: Older adults have elevated suicide rates. Self-harm is the most important risk factor for suicide. There are few population-based studies of self-harm in older adults. AIMS: To calculate self-harm rates, risk factors for repetition and rates of suicide following self-harm in adults aged 60 years and over. METHOD: We studied a prospective, population-based self-harm cohort presenting to six general hospitals in three cities in England during 2000 to 2007. RESULTS: In total 1177 older adults presented with self-harm and 12.8% repeated self-harm within 12 months. Independent risk factors for repetition were previous self-harm, previous psychiatric treatment and age 60-74 years. Following self-harm, 1.5% died by suicide within 12 months. The risk of suicide was 67 times that of older adults in the general population. Men aged 75 years and above had the highest suicide rates. CONCLUSIONS: Older adults presenting to hospital with self-harm are a high-risk group for subsequent suicide, particularly
Methods Data from the Lifestyle and Attitude towards Sexual Behaviour Survey were used for the secondary analysis. Using the two-stage stratified random sampling method, 3000 people (aged 16-49) were selected throughout Japan. Visit custody investigation was conducted to collect each ones data, including general characteristics (gender, age, education, occupational status, marital status, tobacco use, and alcohol consumption), history of parents divorce, history of child abuse, and self-injurious behaviour. The χ2-test and the logistic regression analysis were used to analyse the relationship between history of child abuse and self-injurious behaviour. ...
A non-suicidal self-injury can be scary for parents to discover. Before reacting emotionally, learn why it occurs, who is at risk, and what you can do.
BACKGROUND: We carried out a large randomized trial of a brief form of cognitive therapy, manual-assisted cognitive behaviour therapy (MACT) versus treatment as usual (TAU) for deliberate self-harm. METHOD: Patients presenting with recurrent deliberate self-harm in five centres were randomized to either MACT or (TAU) and followed up over 1 year. MACT patients received a booklet based on cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) principles and were offered up to five plus two booster sessions of CBT from a therapist in the first 3 months of the study. Ratings of parasuicide risk, anxiety, depression, social functioning and global function, positive and negative thinking, and quality of life were measured at baseline and after 6 and 12 months. RESULTS: Four hundred and eighty patients were randomized. Sixty per cent of the MACT group had both the booklet and CBT sessions. There were seven suicides, five in the TAU group. The main outcome measure, the proportion of those repeating deliberate self-harm in the 12

The limitations people with profound intellectual disabilities experience in functioning contribute to a vulnerability to self-injurious behavior. Since this problem behavior has important negative consequences for people concerned, examining the effectiveness of treatments is important. In the current meta-analysis, single-case studies investigating non-aversive, non-intrusive forms of reinforcement were combined using hierarchical linear models. This analysis revealed that the average effect of treatment was relatively large and statistically significant. Further, significant variance was observed between both studies and participants. In addition, some evidence was found for a moderator effect of sensory impairment. Finally, no statistically significant moderator effects of medication, motor impairment, setting, age, gender, matching of treatment with behavioral function and contingency were found ...

Unlike other forms of self-injury, suicidal self-injury has special meaning, particularly in the context of borderline personality disorder. How is suicidal self-injury differentiated from non-suicidal self-injury in these patients, and how can their behavior be properly assessed and treated?
Factors affecting non-suicidal self-injury cessation are poorly understood. The aim of this study was to identify differences between individuals with current and past non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) in a large probability sample of university students using quantitative and qualitative methods. Predictors of psychological growth related following NSSI cessation were also examined. The sample included 836 students who participated in a larger online study of well-being at eight U.S. colleges and who reported current or past history of repeated NSSI. The average age of respondents used in analysis was 21.3 years. They were 78.3 % female and 21.7 % male and were 70.7 % Caucasian, 1.4 % African American/Black, 5.5 % Hispanic, 7.8 % Asian/Asian American and 14.7 % other. Analyses tested differences in demographics, NSSI characteristics (e.g. lifetime frequency, number of NSSI functions, NSSI disclosure), formal help-seeking, psychosocial factors, and mental health and trauma histories.

Published in May 2014, this study explored self-harming behaviour in adolescents relating to different youth subcultures. Non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) behaviour is common in this age group, and certain subpopulations are at greater risk; this questionnaire-based study demonstrated that teenagers with an Alternative identity were more likely both to self-injure and to attempt suicide than their peers, including those relating to a Jock culture. The findings suggested that self-harm behaviour in these teens, who relate to Goth, Emo and Punk subcultures, is primarily thought to have a function in emotional regulation, and communication of distress. Additionally, in a small percentage of Alternative youths from the German sample of adolescents, NSSI was related to a sense of belonging or being part of a group.. Investigating the influence of social culture on self-injurious tendencies in this age group can contribute to the design of peer group-relevant interventions; in an interesting ...

Background. Self-harm is a major and growing public health issue among young people worldwide. Self-harm is an important risk factor for suicide, which is one of the leading causes of death for young people. Although suicide rates are declining overall, this trend is not seen in young people. Young people with mental distress and/or suicidal thoughts are reluctant to seek help, and often drop out of treatment initiated after a self-harm episode. Many young people who self-harm have had contact with healthcare before their first self-harm episode, but often for reasons other than suicidal thoughts or psychiatric problems. In this context, physical illness is associated with increased risk for self-harm and suicide among young people. The present thesis investigated how young people perceived the help and support they received before and after an episode of self-harm. A further aim was to map the inpatient somatic healthcare contacts young patients had before an episode of self-harm, and determine ...

MDS-UPDRS Part III assessed the motor signs of Parkinson's disease and was administered by the investigator. It was comprised of 33 sub-scores based on 18 items, several with right, left or other body distribution scores. Each question was anchored with 5 responses that were linked to commonly accepted clinical terms: 0 = normal, 1 = slight, 2 = mild, 3 = moderate, and 4 = severe. If more than 7 of the Part III items were missing, the score for that time point was missing, otherwise MDS-UPDRS Part III score was imputed as sum of the non-missing items*(total number of items)/ (number of items non-missing). The MDS-UPDRS Part III total score range is 0-132. Higher score indicated more severe motor signs of Parkinson's disease. Results at Week 15 should be interpreted with caution given almost half the participants were not available for this analysis at Week 15 as compared to Week 10 and the complicated nature of protocol changes that impacted the study design after Week 10 ...

BACKGROUND: Risk scales are used widely in the management of patients presenting to hospital following self-harm. However, there is evidence that their diagnostic accuracy in predicting repeat self-harm is limited. Their predictive accuracy in population settings, and in identifying those at highest risk of suicide is not known. METHOD: We compared the predictive accuracy of the Manchester Self-Harm Rule (MSHR), ReACT Self-Harm Rule (ReACT), SAD PERSONS Scale (SPS) and Modified SAD PERSONS Scale (MSPS) in an unselected sample of patients attending hospital following self-harm. Data on 4000 episodes of self-harm presenting to Emergency Departments (ED) between 2010 and 2012 were obtained from four established monitoring systems in England. Episodes were assigned a risk category for each scale and followed up for 6 months. RESULTS: The episode-based repeat rate was 28% (1133/4000) and the incidence of suicide was 0.5% (18/3962). The MSHR and ReACT performed with high sensitivity (98% and 94% respectively)
Suicide is the second leading cause of death among young people ages 10-19 in the U.S., and rates of youth suicide and self-injury hospitalization are on the rise, especially among younger adolescents (1, 2). A 2017 survey estimated that more than 1 in 6 high school students nationwide seriously considered suicide in the previous year, a figure nearly 20% higher than findings from a decade earlier (3). Between 2007 and 2015, suicide rates rose 130% for U.S. children ages 10-14 and 46% for youth ages 15-19 (2). Similar to suicide trends, from 2001 to 2015 self-injury hospitalization rates increased by more than 130% for ages 10-14 and by 47% for ages 15-19 (2). While self-inflicted injuries typically are not the result of suicide attempts and do not involve intent to die, non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) is a risk factor for suicide (4). Data from a 2015 national survey show that in the previous year 18% of high school students had engaged in NSSI at least once, and 6% had engaged in NSSI six or ...

Ask any Board Certified Behavior Analyst, and they will likely tell you that ABA therapy is the go-to treatment for self-injurious behaviors (SIB) IF the individual is diagnosed with an Intellectual or Development Disability.. What they wont tell you, though, is how ABA utilizes abusive and inhumane practices like blocking a vulnerable child from accessing their own personal self-regulatory strategies (like flapping and rocking) in order to intentionally trigger duress. They do this so they can analyze the behavior in context of the social environment without ever factoring in personal relationships. Why?. Because you cant measure human connection.. What is humane about blocking Little Bobbys hand flapping/sensory regulation technique (coping mechanism) by restraining his wrists with the premeditated purpose of intentionally triggering an episode of self-injurious behavior?. In ABA, you only analyze what you observe, and you are trained to observe for one of three things to be ...
EDITOR-We agree with Foster that greater attention must be paid to alcohol use disorders if national and international targets for suicide reduction are to be met.1 Accident and emergency departments have a central part to play in tackling the link between alcohol misuse and suicidal behaviour as most patients with deliberate self harm present there.. Research has indicated that over half of men who present to hospital after deliberate self harm have consumed alcohol in the few hours preceding the attempt, half regularly drink excessive amounts of alcohol, and 23% are alcohol dependent.2 Despite this strong association many patients who present to hospital after deliberate self harm do not have their alcohol use assessed.3. At the accident and emergency department at St Marys Hospital, in inner London, the proportion of patients whose alcohol consumption is assessed has been greatly increased by the introduction of the Paddington alcohol test.4 This test takes less than a minute to complete and ...

ESDs administer electrical shocks through electrodes attached to the skin of individuals to immediately interrupt self-injurious or aggressive behavior or attempt to condition the individuals to stop engaging in such behavior. Evidence indicates a number of significant psychological and physical risks are associated with the use of these devices, including worsening of underlying symptoms, depression, anxiety, posttraumatic stress disorder, pain, burns and tissue damage. In addition, many people who are exposed to these devices have intellectual or developmental disabilities that make it difficult to communicate their pain. Evidence of the devices effectiveness is weak and evidence supporting the benefit-risk profiles of alternatives is strong. As the risks presented by ESDs meet the agencys definition of unreasonable and substantial and cannot be corrected or eliminated through new or updated labeling, banning the product is necessary to protect public health ...

Even as someone in recovery from self-harming behavior, the statistics regarding who and how many continue to self-harm still hits home. A recent study by Dr. Paul Moran at the Institute of Psychiatry at Kings College at the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute, Melbourne, found that 1 in 12 young people self-harm as adolescents, with the balance skewed toward girls. Morans study followed a group of young people from Victoria, Australia, from adolescence (14-15 years old) to young adulthood (28-29 years old) between 1992 and 2008. According to the study, out of the 1802 participants responding to the adolescent phase, 149 (8%) reported self-harm. More girls (10%) than boys (6%) reported self-harm, which translates to a 60% increased risk of self-harm for girls compared to boys.1 Self-cutting/burning was the most common type of self-harming behavior seen in adolescents, but other forms of self-harm include self-battery, poisoning and overdose. Additional findings in Dr. Morans study show ...
This study presents unique descriptions of how adolescents living in urban England view self-harm. Adolescents depicted self-harm as a complex behaviour involving a range of methods, functions and taboos. Those who self-harmed described it as a private, inwardly focused expression of distress, often with a reluctance to disclose and seek help. This was reinforced by the comments about self-harm as attention seeking from participants who had not self-harmed. Such views may contribute to fears about responses from others, particularly where social support may be variable or lacking. Self-harm being discovered by others was often viewed as a negative experience. Although most participants were unclear about what would constitute help, some reflected on the benefits of help they had received following disclosure of self-harm. The ethnic diversity within this sample illustrated that self-harm was concern across a range of ethnic groups. Mixed reflections and experiences described in this study ...
More than 90 percent of the patients were female, three-quarters were white, and the average age was 15, the researchers noted. Nearly 41 percent were found to have engaged in intentional self-inflicted injury. More than 85 percent of the time this took the form of cutting themselves. Yet despite the high prevalence, only about half of the patients had been asked by hospital staff if they had hurt themselves on purpose. Those who were asked tended to fit a classic profile: they were female, older, white and had a diagnosis of bulimia and/or substance abuse of some kind. The question is, said Peebles, are we missing other kids who are not meeting this profile? This is part of why we wanted to look at this. If you see an innocent-looking 12-year-old boy, you dont even think of asking about self-injurious behavior. We need to get much better about universal screening ...
article{93c4e9a8-0b03-490c-899d-0e33bd080295, abstract = {Objective: A disturbed glucose metabolism has been observed in patients with aggressive behaviour. Interleukin (IL)-1β is a pro-inflammatory cytokine that can induce hypoglycaemia, but has also been suggested to be involved in the generation of hostility and aggression. Our group has previously shown an altered glucose metabolism in patients with self-inflicted aggressive behaviour. We investigated the hypothesis that the levels of IL-1 would be increased in these patients, because this might explain the aberrant glucose metabolism and add further knowledge to the aetiology of self-inflicted aggressive behaviour. Method: We investigated plasma cytokine changes in 13 patients with borderline personality disorder and 13 healthy controls during a 5-h glucose challenge. Plasma samples were analysed for cytokines IL-1β, TNF-α and IL-6 using high-sensitivity multiplex ELISA. Psychiatric symptoms were rated using the Aggression ...
1 Results of the first funding period To investigate the influence of tissue damage in the context of non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI), we first characterized nociceptive non-invasive stimuli and a mechanical stimulus associated with tissue injury (incision). Twenty healthy men and women each were investigated regarding pain intensity and affective/sensory characteristics of the stimuli. Affective scores were significantly lower than sensory scores for all modalities, including the incision. In women, affective scores were not different for blade, laser and incision stimuli. In a second step, a non-invasive mechanical blade stimulus was matched by means of pain intensity with the incision stimulus. Comparing time courses of blade and incision pain, the time course including the pain maximum was very similar (point-by-point comparison between p=0.8 and 1.0). In the ongoing second study, we were successful to induce stress in all groups (current BPD, remitted BPD, healthy controls), verified by ...
People conduct self-injurious behaviors for a wide variety of reasons. The most common reason for self-injury is to cope with various emotions. A person who does self-injury may have grown up in a home that did not have a good emotional structure. Perhaps that persons parents never established a healthy stress-management or emotional communication program. Such a person may feel as though causing himself or herself pain is the only way to express the way that he or she feels inside. Cutting and other types of self-injury may be a reflection of depression, anxiety or anger. The moment the person causes the self-inflicted injury, he or she may feel a sense of relief.. Some people have a strong need to punish themselves. Such people will conduct self-injurious activities when they feel they have done something wrong. The perceived wrongdoing may be something as trivial as an impure thought or as bad as a criminal activity. The person may feel as though pain is the way to pay for such activity. ...
Of 177 adolescents aged twelve to eighteen, suicidal ideation was reported in 39.5%, self-harm in 44.1% and suicidal attempts in 15.8%. The study, however, utilised no comparative groups and did not consider strength of intent which could, of course, range from seeking attention to seeking death. Finally, the authors wondered if the rates simply reflect trends in the general population.. A review of such trends reveals the great difficulties in getting reliable data from child and adolescent interviewees, in whom rates of non-suicidal self-injury vary from 12.5 to 23.6%, and deliberate self-harm from 12.2 to 31.4%, depending on the form of assessment. [26] Other studies have confirmed that between 19 [27] and 29% [28] of all adolescents have announced a history of suicidal ideation, and between 7 and 13% have attempted suicide, though what constitutes an attempt is not defined.. Casting doubt on the alleged high rate of suicide due to gender dysphoria in adolescents, an author in the Journal ...

This study will be done in approximately 6 centers in approximately 4 countries, and approximately 24 subjects will be included. This study is divided into two parts. The first is a double-blinded portion lasting up to 18 weeks in total. The second portion is an optional open-label extension and lasts up to 54 weeks total. The total duration of the study, if you choose to participate in both portions, is anticipated to be up to approximately 78 weeks.. The first portion of this study is double-blind and assignment to a treatment group is done randomly. In this study, there are two treatment groups. One group will receive Ecopipam for one 6-week period and placebo for two 6-week periods, and the other group will receive Ecopipam for two 6-week periods and placebo for one 6-week period.. Subjects who did not experience any clinically significant side effects during the blinded portion of the study may be eligible to participate in an open-label extension that may last up to 54 weeks. ...
Certain types of childhood abuse are associated with BPD, and they have been researched and documented among the psychiatric population. Two of the nine diagnostic criteria for BPD involve self-harm; this had already been noted in the research. The 77 psychiatric patients who participated in this study were in an acute-care psychiatry unit of an urban hospital. The patients were over 18 and cognitively intact. Researchers assessed childhood abuse (prior to age 15) by asking questions that required a yes or no response. Self-harm behavior was measured with a 22-item yes/no self-report questionnaire. The results showed that, with the exception of witnessing violence, childhood abuse was associated with BPD and self-harm behaviors. Furthermore, the more abuses experienced during childhood, the greater the number of self-harm behaviors inflicted. Yet, a finding requiring further study was that multiple forms of abuse did not inevitably result in more severe BPDs. Given the amount of money spent on ...

The handbook takes a common sense approach to self-harm and reads as a supportive and helpful document. Much of it I would endorse but I would omit the sections on damage limitation and alternative forms of self-harm. There is a legal argument that suggesting alternative forms of self-harm may be cited as encouraging someone to injure themselves. There are also psychological and/or psychodynamic reasons why I think these sections are unnecessary and might be risky as they could be misinterpreted or used to excess. Snapping rubber bands on wrists, pinching or using toothbrushes on skin could lead to bruising or bleeding. Hitting with pillows may cause injuries. Taking a bath a little hotter or colder than usual could result in burns or hypothermia. Squeezing ice is ill-advised and biting into something strongly flavoured could lead to some highly dangerous and creative choices. Advice to use clean, sharp instruments when cutting will, I suspect, have no impact on those who deliberately choose ...
I am the same as you, I usually self harm when I feel angry and I dont feel the pain. I do however, occasionally, self harm when Im really depressed and I dont know what else to do. I do get triggered though sometimes. Its hard to explain but it only happens when I am not well and I am trying to not self harm. I get very clear images in my head and it makes me want to do it. I find when I feel like that and I either see in the preview of a post that it about self harm or if I start to read a post and I find out then that its about self harm, I just dont read on. I think that the person that owns a blog can say whatever they want, we dont have to read it, that is up to us. If you know you are worried about being triggered, dont read, its the readers responsibility I think. Just my thoughts ...
awareness about self-harm and introducing the SASHI project.. The session began by asking the officers about their views on self-harm and why people self-harm. The police officers identified multiple reasons for self-harm and suicide among the policemen and their families, including financial problems, addiction and work-related stressors. We also screened our video on self-harm and suicide linked to exam pressure, #youfirstmarksnext http://sashi.bangor.ac.uk/sashitv/youfirstmarksnext.php.en. The participants felt that the session helped increase their understanding of self-harm and that it was important because the topic was rarely discussed.. ...
Feasibility. A DSH register should be representative, complete and accurate. The register should be acceptable to the entrants and only take a minimal time for data collection and registration. For the purpose of this study the following were identified as indicators of feasibility:. · Time between identifying that the patient should be included in the register and completion of data entry in the register.

Background: Little is known about self-harm occurring during the period of untreated first-episode psychosis. Aims: To establish the prevalence, nature, motivation and risk factors for self-harm occurring during the untreated phase of first-episode psychosis. Method: As part of the AESOP (Aetiology and Ethnicity in Schizophrenia and Other Psychoses) study, episodes of self-harm were identified among all incident cases of psychosis presenting to services in south-east London and Nottingham over a 2-year period. Results: Of the 496 participants, 56 (11.3%) had engaged in self-harm between the onset of psychotic symptoms and first presentation to services. The independent correlates of self-harm were: male gender, belonging to social class I/II, depression and a prolonged period of untreated psychosis. increased insight was also associated with risk of self-harm. Conclusions: Self-harm is common during the pre-treatment phase of first-episode psychosis. A unique set of fixed and malleable risk ...
Naltrexone is a relatively new treatment for some children with severe mental retardationand self-injurious behavior, such as head banging or self-biting.

Suicide and self-harm are serious patient safety issues in mental healthcare that have been gaining increasing focus recently. Suicide impacts not only the person with mental illness but also families, friends, and communities. Contrary to popular belief, most suicides take place in the community, not on inpatient units in hospitals. Efforts to reduce these incidents should therefore be concentrated in this area of the healthcare spectrum. In addition, timely and appropriate identification of risk is key to reducing and preventing incidents of suicide or self-harm. The factors underlying suicide and self-harm behaviours may be unique; however, the processes of assessment and prevention share some important practices. ...
Roaldset, John Olav; Gøtestam, K Gunnar; Holen, Are; Bjørkly, Stål & Laake, Petter (2010). Risk assessment of violent, suicidal and self-injurious behaviour in acute psychiatry - a bio-psycho-social approach. Show summary Recently, psychiatric hospitals in Norway have been criticised for premature discharges and for poor assessments of patients risks of violence or self-harm. Due to the high turnover of patients and the obligation to admit all acutely ill patients who are in need of hospitalisation, the acute wards are particularly exposed to such criticism. Unstructured clinical judgements alone still appear to be the dominant approach to risk assessments. Currently used instruments for risk assessment are time consuming, and their use require special expertise. The goal of the Risk Project at Ålesund Hospital was early identification of patients in need of risk assessments. Various screening methods were tested in a prospective, naturalistic design. This dissertation is a part of the ...
Children with autism in addition to the main symptoms of autism are more likely to have difficulties with attention, concentration, organizing their behaviors. And theyre also more likely to display destructive behavior such as self-injurious behavior -- being harmful to oneself -- such as banging ones head or biting and scratching oneself, or aggression towards other people such as biting, kicking, scratching or that sort of thing. And children with autism are also fairly unique in the types of things that trigger these outbursts.
This trauma center saw an unprecedented number of suicide attempts and self-injurious behavior among young patients during COVID-19.

Most patients can safely and effectively be started on clozapine in community treatment settings. However, it is difficult to start some patients on clozapine because they have challenges to participating in community treatment or because they are at high risk of serious side effects. This includes patients who are likely to benefit substantially from the medication. Clinicians should consider hospitalizing patients when there are challenges to starting clozapine in the community, such as a history of suicide attempts, violence or self-injurious behavior; ongoing severe substance use; disorganization; severe cognitive impairment; or social or economic problems, such as homelessness, limited access to laboratory or pharmacy, or limited support from families and other caregivers. Patients can be at high risk due to side effects if they have a relevant serious medical illness, concurrent problematic medications, or previously experienced a serious side effect, such as myocarditis, severe ...

Comprehensive nationwide screening for PKU began in 1969. This means that many individuals with PKU born prior to nationwide screening were not diagnosed until damage to the brain was evident. Consequently, many individuals with PKU have spent their lives in social care environments or at home needing constant supervision.. In addition to learning difficulties, high blood phenylalanine levels may cause other problems. Some individuals exhibit behavioural problems, for example - aggressiveness, hyperactivity, self-injurious behaviour, sleep problems and they may also suffer from skin conditions such as eczema.. Guidance on the treatment of people with untreated/late treated PKU is contained in the consensus European Guidelines.. ...
Deliberate self-harm carries negative connotations for many healthcare professionals and members of the public; this is widely due to lack of knowledge and revulsion for the act itself (Kilroy-Findley, 2015; National Institute of Health and Care Excellence [NICE], 2004). NICE guidance (2004/2011) aimed to improve the understanding and treatment received by those who self-harm; however, there is evidence from a number of charities that this has not improved the experience for many service users (MIND, 2010).
Below is an annotated bibliography of articles describing the prevalence of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), in contrast to other clinical disorders, among individuals who engage in NSSI. I have only included studies that use a standardized method of assessment for diagnostic variables, as chart review diagnoses are likely to be influenced by biases of clinicians who view NSSI as possible only in the context of BPD. As you can see from the below (non-exhaustive) sample of articles, that is not the case! Some articles compare the rates of BPD with the rates of other disorders, whereas other articles focus on highlighting the variability in BPD diagnosis rates among people with a history of NSSI.. Please note: this is not an exhaustive list, and I am not an author on these articles. For reprints, please contact the authors directly.. 1) Andover, M. S., Schatten, H. T., Morris, B.

Self-mutilation, self-injury or non-suicidal self-harm is the act of deliberate, repetitive, impulsive, non-lethal harming of ones body.
By the time you read this, theres a good chance you will have seen articles in consumer media saying that high antidepressant doses in teens and young adults increase their risk of suicide. Watch out, its not that simple.. The study on which those articles would be based is actually a pretty good one. It found that rates of deliberate self-harm (including suicide attempts as well as lesser self-injuries such as cutting) were about twice as highin those in the 10 to 24 age group who were started on selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressants at relatively high doses, compared with those taking modal or below-modal doses Moreover, that hazard ratio reflected adjustment for a self-harm propensity score, which the authors calculated from a set of known risk factors that were tallied in the claims data.. ...
A male in crisis was taken to hospital after a struggle on Hughson North as over a dozen first responders needed to restrain him for treatment of wounds.
My other creative project at the minute is making the Hope Box on the advice of the Crisis Team! After professionals have discovered that I almost always have a hidden place for sharp objects, and other paraphernalia for self-harming, they suggest creating a Self-soothe Box. The intention is to place items I find helpful in the one place to make it a go-to when Im struggling with my mental health. However, I find it more helpful to have to go rooting around my home for self-soothing products because it gives me some focus and purpose. A Hope Box, however, seems like a whole different ballgame to me! A key emotion when Im suicidal or having thoughts to self-harm is hopelessness and so having a box which contains reminders of all the reasons I should be hopeful, sounds like the perfect method to counteract such a negative and potentially harmful emotion. Unfortunately, since I self-harmed a little while ago and Im now in a cast and enormous bandage, using scissors to cut out photos and quotes ...
College employees observing any behavior or obtaining information regarding a students expressions, threats, plans or attempts related to suicide or self-harming behaviors are expected to immediately report the matter to Campus Police or contact 911.. If the employee observes or receives first-hand information (directly from a student exhibiting suicidal or self-harming behaviors) the employee must immediately call 911 and share the students name, description, details of the matter, and the students location and/or destination (if known) with law enforcement personnel. If possible, College employees should attempt to maintain visual contact with the student until law enforcement arrives.. All suicidal expressions, threats, and/or attempts should be taken seriously. No attempt to independently evaluate the validity or imminence of the suicidal ideation should be made, except by law enforcement or a designated official from the NCTC Counseling and Testing Services Office.. ...
Why self-harm? Most people know that we are all made with an in-built survival mechanism. In the light of this, self-harm can seem like a senseless behaviour.. I recently ran a training session about self-harm for a school in Sheffield. As I was preparing for this, I came across some research into self-harm and the brain. What I discovered shed some light on just why people turn to self-harm.. SELF HARM AND THE BRAIN. When I ask someone why they self-harm, they can provide me with a range of answers. The most common answer that I hear is, Because it makes me feel better. I dont know why, but it does. Neuroscience research has found that the parts of the brain that deal with physical and emotional pain criss-cross. This means that when one part of the brain is activated, the other is deactivated for a short time. So, if someone is very upset and self-harm, the part of the brain which copes with physical pain is activated. This means that the part of the brain that registers emotional pain ...
In collaboration with colleagues at Birmingham University, we examined the daily number of hospital admissions in England for heart attacks, strokes, deliberate self-harm and road traffic injuries during the period of the World Cup (June 1998) among men and women aged 16-64 years. We calculated the expected numbers of admissions for each day of the week using data of admissions for the same causes over the same time period in 1997 and 1999, and in the month prior to the World Cup. We then compared the observed to expected ratios of admissions and demonstrated that heart attacks, but none of the other causes of admission, were increased by 25 per cent for the day (30 June), and the following two days after, the loss to Argentina.. Can the risk factors be tested in a randomised controlled trial?. Epidemiology is the study of the distribution and determinants of health-related states and events in populations.

Self-harm is common among young people. However, it may not be appropriate to compare young people who self-harm and adult psychiatric patients who self-harm.
Self-harm induced somatic admissions were highly prevalent during the first year after discharge from acute psychiatric admission. Underdiagnosing of self-harm in relation to somatic self-harm admissions may cause incorrect follow-up treatments and unreliable register data.
For her PhD research, Dianna Bartsch in the Universitys School of Psychology has surveyed clinicians who work with parents who have been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD) and their families.. BPD is a mental illness that affects approximately 1-2% of people in the general population. It is categorised by difficulty managing emotions, impulsive and self-harming behaviour, intense and unstable relationships, chronic feelings of emptiness, stress-related paranoia and other symptoms.. In a paper published in the journal Personality and Mental Health, Mrs Bartsch says clinicians have identified a number of potential impacts on children whose parents suffer from BPD.. The most frequently cited issues for children are behavioural problems - which may include impulsive and in some cases self-destructive behaviour - and situations where the child takes on a parental role, Mrs Bartsch says.. Inability to express or regulate emotions, difficulties establishing and maintaining ...
Self harm in adolescents is a major public health problem in many countries. It is associated with recurrent psychosocial problems1 2 and poor long term outcome,3 and it may mark an emerging personality disorder.4 Self harm tends to recur; the reported risk of repetition in adolescents ranges from 10% within six months to 42% during a 21-month follow-up, with a median recurrence of 5-15% each year.5 The risk of suicide after self harm in adolescence is around 0.1-0.5% over 10 years2 6 with retrospective studies reporting a repetition rate of 36% over 10-12 years7 and lifetime mortality rates of 4-11%.8 9 Self harm shows comorbidity with axis I psychiatric disorders in 43% to 70% of cases, with evidence that the number of comorbid conditions is associated with increased risk of a serious suicide attempt.10 Around two thirds of children and adolescents presenting with self harm score positively for depressive disorders11 12 13 14 15; suicidal adolescents with chronic and recurrent affective ...
