Abstract

Self-harm (SH) continues to be a worldwide concern among adolescents and there is a great need for programming aimed at reducing SH in adolescents. Evans and colleagues discuss the opinions of school staff from a representative sample of secondary schools across England and Wales regarding their school's current prevention and intervention practices in responding to self-harm and how this should be addressed in future practice. The most salient points include the high prevalence of SH internationally, the existing barriers to SH prevention and intervention and possible solutions to these barriers. There is clearly an urgent need for high quality, evidence-based interventions that can be embedded in school settings, and have the capacity to overcome both the individual and structural barriers to supporting these vulnerable young people.
