The Centre for Suicide Research has had an outstanding impact on the prevention of suicide and self-harm in the UK and internationally, conducting studies of the highest quality that have brought new insights and helped shape policy and practice. The range of research – from epidemiology to bereavement support, from young people to NHS staff, is extraordinary.”
Professor Sir Louis Appleby, Director of the National Confidential Inquiry into Suicide and Homicide by People with Mental Illness
At the Centre for Suicide Research we investigate the extent, nature and causes of self-harm and suicide and translate the findings into implications for prevention, treatment and support. We are proud that our work has had tangible benefits in terms of national policy and, most importantly, in saving lives.
We have developed resources for people bereaved by suicide, for parents and carers of young people who self-harm, for prevention of suicide clusters, and for clinicians, including guidance on assessment and treatment following self-harm..
We collaborate with a range of researchers and other stakeholders in both the UK and other countries worldwide and lead the Multicentre Study of Self-harm in England.
