In November 2011 the following recommendations were replaced with recommendations from Self-harm: longer-term management (NICE clinical guideline CG133): recommendations 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168 on assessment of risk, 22.214.171.124 on special issues for children and young people, and 126.96.36.199 on psychological, psychosocial and pharmacological interventions.
Recommendation 188.8.131.52 on psychological, psychosocial and pharmacological interventions was withdrawn.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.
