This booklet provides accessible information and advice on self-harm. Self-harm describes any behaviour where someone causes harm to themselves, usually as a way to help cope with difficult or distressing thoughts and feelings. It most frequently takes the form of cutting, burning or nonlethal overdoses. However, it can also be any behaviour that causes injury – no matter how minor, or high-risk behaviours. This resource explains how to get help, the recovery process, how to keep safe, and what to do, and look out for, if worried that someone may be self-harming. (Edited publisher abstract)

Place of publication:
London

A comprehensive summary of mental health research, providing a handbook of key facts and figures, covering all key areas of mental health. The document shows that in the UK mental health problems are responsible for the largest burden of disease – 28 per cent of the total burden, while mental health research receives only 5.5 per cent (£115 million) of total UK health research spending. One in four people experience a mental health problem in any given year and ten per cent of children and young people (aged 5-16 years) have a clinically diagnosable mental problem. Common mental health problems such as depression and anxiety are distributed according to a gradient of economic disadvantage across society with the poorer and more disadvantaged disproportionately affected from common mental health problems and their adverse consequences.
