NICE guidance on ‘self harm’

    • Fast, easy summary view of NICE guidance on ‘self harm’

    • Self-harm: The short-term physical and psychological management and secondary prevention of self-harm in primary and secondary care

      Clinical guidelines, CG16 – Issued: July 2004

      In November 2011 the following recommendations were replaced with recommendations from Self-harm: longer-term management (NICE clinical guideline CG133): recommendations 1.7.3.3 and 1.7.3.4 on assessment of risk, 1.9.1.13 on special issues for children and young people, and 1.11.1.4 on psychological, psychosocial and pharmacological interventions.

      Recommendation 1.11.1.5 on psychological, psychosocial and pharmacological interventions has been withdrawn.

      The NICE clinical guideline on self-harm covers:

      • the care people who harm themselves can expect to receive from healthcare professionals in hospital and out of hospital
      • the information they can expect to receive
      • what they can expect from treatment
      • what kinds of services best help people who harm themselves

      The guideline does not attempt to explain self-harm or describe the treatment in detail.
