Understanding and responding to risk of suicide and self-harm amongst prisoners.

About this Event

Prisoners are at increased risk of mental illness, self-harm and suicide, as are others in contact with the criminal justice system. This seminar will examine the international and national epidemiological understanding of the occurrence and correlates of self-harm and suicide rates in custodial settings. The seminar will also focus on findings from a number of local studies conducted in NSW prison settings, including a study aiming to improve screening for mental illness and self-harm risk in those entering custody.
