In November 2011 the following recommendations were replaced with recommendations from Self-harm: longer-term management (NICE clinical guideline CG133): recommendations 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 on assessment of risk, 184.108.40.206 on special issues for children and young people, and 220.127.116.11 on psychological, psychosocial and pharmacological interventions.
Recommendation 18.104.22.168 on psychological, psychosocial and pharmacological interventions was withdrawn.
The NICE clinical guideline on self-harm covers:
- the care people who harm themselves can expect to receive from healthcare professionals in hospital and out of hospital
- the information they can expect to receive
- what they can expect from treatment
- what kinds of services best help people who harm themselves
The guideline does not attempt to explain self-harm or describe the treatment in detail.
