    GPs should regularly review self-harm patients and offer a specific CBT intervention, according to a consultation on the first new guidance for self-harm to be drawn up in 11 years. The new draft guidance emphasises the importance of referring patients to specialist mental health services, but stresses that, for patients who are treated in primary care, continuity is crucial. If someone who has self-harmed is being treated in primary care, GPs must ensure regular follow-up appointments and reviews of self-harm behaviour, as well as a medicines review, the draft guideline say.

    A nurse who was struck off for refusing to admit a woman to a mental health unit before she killed herself said 'leave her, she will faint before she dies' before he kicked her out of the facility. Paddy McKee allegedly made the comment as Sally Mays, 22 - who had mental health issues - tried to strangle herself when she was refused admission. Ms Mays killed herself at home in Hull in July 2014 after being refused a place at Miranda House in Hull by McKee and another nurse. Despite her being a suicide risk, they would not give her a place at the hospital after a 14-minute assess

    Around 80% of adolescents who died by suicide or who had self-harmed had consulted with their GP or a practice nurse in the preceding year, shows new research. The large study of 10 to 19-year-olds between 2003 and 2018, published in the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, also puts forward a series of proposals to deal with the problem. The study, funded by the NIHR Greater Manchester Patient Safety Translational Research Centre (NIHR GM PSTRC), a partnership between The University of Manchester and The Northern Care Alliance NHS Foundation Trust (NCA). It showed that 8

    November is Men’s Health Awareness month.[1] The theme this year is men’s mental health, highlighting the high suicide rate among men. However, there remains the wider theme of men being reluctant to go to their GP when they have a health problem, which can lead to a delay in diagnosis and treatment. There are many reasons that men are reluctant to seek help, in particular for their mental health, and why the suicide rate among men is so high. There are initiatives that exist to encourage men to seek help and to break down some of the existing societal expectations; however, there is still mor

    Suicidal thoughts are three times as common in those living with a spinal cord injury in the UK, according to new research And yet, it’s estimated that only one third of people living with a spinal cord injury (SCI) are getting access to mental health support, and of those, 68% do not feel that support services available are able to meet their needs. These alarming statistics are taken from a new report, ‘It’s not just physical’ which was presented to parliament yesterday (17 November). The report shines a light on the mental health problems faced by people with spinal cord injuries

    Findings: 28% of people living with a SCI experience suicidal ‘ideation’ – frequent thoughts or ideas about committing suicide 47% of people living with a SCI reported experiencing mental health problems in one or more of the assessed mental health conditions 68% of people living with a SCI who accessed NHS psychological support have stopped because it was either “not appropriate for their condition” or “making their condition worse” It’s really not just physical. The findings of this seminal research is a wake-up call for the NHS, healthcare planners and policymaker

    A woman took her own life on a ward after her move to a mental health hospital was not facilitated. Anne Clelland was found unconscious in the toilet of her room in Glasgow's Queen Elizabeth University Hospital and later died of a brain injury. Anne - who had a history of self-harm - was admitted following an overdose. She was due to be moved to a psychiatric hospital three days before her death but this did not take place because of a "failure of communication." NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde pled guilty today to failing to conduct their undertaking in a way that a person would

    A coroner has raised concerns about how a family was allowed to bring a restricted item that contributed to a man's death into a mental health unit. Joshua Sahota, 25, died as a result of asphyxia and psychosis in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, on 9 September 2019. Suffolk coroner Nigel Parsley said Mr Sahota's relatives were not told the item they brought in when visiting was on a restricted list. The NHS trust which runs the unit said it had improved its internal processes. Mr Sahota, from Kennett in Cambridgeshire, was taken to the Wedgewood Unit on the West Suffolk Hospital

    Joshua Sahota had been admitted to Southgate Ward at Wedgewood House on 9 August 2019 following a stay as an inpatient at Addenbrookes Hospital, where he had been seen by a psychiatrist and deemed to be at a continuing high risk of self-harm. His family were asked to take fresh clothes to the Southgate Ward, which they did so in a plastic carrier bag. It had not been communicated to them that this was a ‘restricted item’ on the ward. Joshua was subsequently transferred to Northgate Ward, also within Wedgewood House, on the 15 August 2019. On the 9 September 2019, Josh was found in his roo

    A third of all children’s acute hospital beds in parts of England are being occupied by vulnerable children who do not need acute medical care but have nowhere else to go, safeguarding experts have warned. Doctors say they feel like very expensive “babysitters” for vulnerable children, many of whom are in care but whose placements have broken down because of their violent and self-harming behaviour. Others have severe neurodevelopmental or eating disorders and need specialist treatment not available on ordinary children’s wards, where they get “stuck”, sometimes for months at a time.

    The father of a man who took his own life said the mental health unit where he was staying "failed him completely". Joshua Sahota, 25, died as a result of asphyxia and psychosis at the Wedgewood Unit in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, on 9 September 2019. Insufficient staffing levels at the unit contributed to his death, an inquest jury found. Mr Sahota, from Kennett in Cambridgeshire, was taken to the unit three weeks before his death as his mental health had declined. There was no psychologist in post and the jury at Suffolk Coroner's Court recorded this as having contributed t

    Before the coronavirus pandemic, the nation was struggling with escalating drug overdose deaths. Now, there are some who are convinced that the COVID-19 pandemic has led to further increases in opioid overdoses. Public services were disrupted. Some treatment programmes had to restrict access, reduce staffing, and increase supply between limited provider visits. Many addicts are homeless and do not have Internet or telemedicine contact. Social distancing may have prevented some individuals from having anyone around to administer naloxone (Narcan, Evzio). Inadequate border restrictions have like

    The Coroner noted that Azra’s family had raised concerns about a suicide attempt that had not been subsequently recorded on her risk screen or included in handover information the following day to the multidisciplinary team (MDT) meeting. Due to restrictions relating to the Covid-19 pandemic, Azra's family could not attend that meeting to raise their concerns directly. Microsoft Teams was used by some clinicians to attend the MDT on the day but was not made available to Azra's family nor was a telephone number to dial into the meeting. The Trust had put in a system for a form to be comple

    Self-harm among the over-65s must receive greater focus because of the increased risks associated with the pandemic, a leading expert has said. Loneliness, bereavement and reluctance to access GPs can all be causes in older adults, said Prof Nav Kapur, who has produced guidelines on the subject. He warned that in over-65s, without the right help, self-harm can also be a predictor of later suicide attempts. The NHS's mental health director said it had expanded its community support. Claire Murdoch added that its services, including face-to-face appointments, had "continued f

    Research has found that people who go to A&E following self-harm receive varying quality of care and this has a significant impact on what they experience subsequently. The study in BMJ Open, which was codesigned and co-authored with people who have lived experience of self-harm and mental health services, found negative experiences were common, and revealed stigmatising comments about injuries from some hospital staff. Some participants reported being refused medical care or an anaesthetic because they had harmed themselves. This had a direct impact on their risk of repeat self-harm

    A fourth suspected suicide has occurred at a mental health trust which was recently warned by the Care Quality Commission after three other similar inpatient deaths in quick succession, HSJ can reveal. All four deaths at Devon Partnership Trust had common themes, including the use of ligatures, and occurred amid a year-long delay to the trust’s plan to reduce ligature risks. Figures obtained by HSJ under freedom of information laws also reveal the trust took nearly a year to investigate the first two deaths. The target is 90 days. The trust told HSJ it had faced “humongous” prob

    Findings The men spoken to had been struggling for years with poor mental health and suicidal thoughts and feelings. Despite experiencing many well-known risk factors for this group, many opportunities to help them at critical points before they reached crisis were missed. Importantly, the men spoken to didn't see community-based support services, focused on fostering connection and community, as relevant to them before they reached crisis. "There exists a vacuum of responsibility in which opportunities to engage and support these men, before they hit crisis point, were neglecte

    The report makes a number of recommendations of how the needs of people who self-harm can be met more effectively: Government should ensure that planned investment in mental health support through the Long Term Plan results in specialist mental health services such as Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) being supported with additional resource to increase expertise and capacity to support people who self-harm. NHS England should work with third sector experts and people with lived experience to develop a free self-care app for anyone who has presented to clinical ser

    A quarter of children referred for specialist mental health care because of self-harm, eating disorders and other conditions are being rejected for treatment, a new report has found. The study by the Education Policy Institute warns that young patients are waiting an average of two months for help, and frequently turned away. It follows research showing that one in three mental health trusts are only accepting cases classed as the most severe. GPs have warned that children were being forced to wait until their condition deteriorated - in some cases resulting in a suicide attempt -
