The eleventh annual report from the National Registry of Deliberate Self-Harm is based on data collected on persons presenting to all 35 hospital emergency departments as a result of self-harm in 2012 in the Republic of Ireland. In 2012, the Registry recorded 12,010 presentations to hospital due to deliberate self-harm nationally, involving 9,483 individuals.

Taking the population into account, the age-standardised rate of individuals presenting to hospital following deliberate self-harm in 2012 was 211 per 100,000, a 2% decrease on the rate in 2011. However, the rate in 2012 was still 12% higher than that in 2007. In 2012, the national male rate of deliberate self-harm was 195 per 100,000, and the female rate of deliberate self-harm in 2012 was 228 per 100,000. Despite the overall decrease in 2012, the male rate has increased by 20% since 2007 and the female rate has increased by 6% over the same period
