Welcome to MaSH Learning: Management of Self-Harm in the Emergency Department.
This online learning resource has been developed by researchers at the Manchester Self-Harm (MaSH) Project, which is part of the Centre for Suicide Prevention, a leading UK centre for research into suicidal behaviour based at The University of Manchester.
This resource has been designed to help you understand more about why people self-harm and how to help people who present to hospital emergency departments after self-harm.
This resource covers the following five sections:
- What is self-harm?
- The epidemiology and risk factors for self-harm
- Best practice hospital management of self-harm
- Is hospital management of self-harm improving?
- Practical clinical guidance
You can navigate through the sections below at your own pace. We estimate it should take no longer than one hour to complete.
