About the conference
Worldwide 10-20% of young people report having self-harmed at least once before the age of 18 and self-harm is one of the strongest risk factors for completed suicide. Added to this suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death for young people globally and therefore predictors such as self-harm are of great importance.
A critical topic that all those working in the field of child and adolescent mental health should know about. Learn about the latest research, the different types of interventions, and the evidence base that supports this. The Emanuel Miller Memorial Lecture & International Online Conference focused on ‘Suicide and self-harm; The Research, The Evidence, The Interventions’ gathering together the leading academics, clinicians, and researchers in field.
