dc.description.abstractSelf-harming (e.g., self-cutting or self-poisoning, irrespective of suicidal intent) is common among young people. We studied 586 consecutive referrals (474 individuals) to a specialist self-harm service over five years. We found that young people who repeated self-harm, compared to those that did not, tended to have complex family and personal histories including mental illness, substance misuse, and child abuse. Although many factors are likely to interact, regression analyses revealed factors that act independently as predictors of repeat self-harm. These included being female, not having both biological parents as the main caregivers, and caregivers that appeared uncooperative. Other significant independent factors were multiple social agencies being involved, if the young person used more than one method of self-harm or abused alcohol. © 2013 Copyright Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
