Can psychological therapies help people who self-harm?
Latest research out today has found that psychological therapies, more commonly known as ‘talking treatments’, may help people who self- harm. Self-harm is intentional self-poisoning or self-injury. Many people who are admitted to hospital because of this are at an increased risk of self- harming again and of suicide. It is a major problem in many countries, leads to high levels of distress for patients and their families and friends, and places significant demands on health services.
