The report highlights the importance of responsive and high quality care for people who self-harm. It also advocates better sharing of information between organisations and families, so that healthcare professionals will be better able to:

  • listen to the views of family members and friends, who may offer insight into a loved ones’ state of mind which can help with care or treatment
  • support people who may want to share information with their families or friends about thoughts they might be having, and
  • provide advice to families and carers about support services available and steps they can take to help keep a loved one safe.
