PDF - Published Version

The National Registry of Deliberate Self Harm is a national system of population monitoring for the occurrence of deliberate self harm. Deliberate self harm is a predictor of fatal and non-fatal suicidal behaviour.

This is the sixth annual report from the National Registry of Deliberate Self Harm. It is based on data collected on persons presenting to hospital emergency departments as a result of deliberate self harm in 2006 and 2007 in the Republic of Ireland. The Registry has had near complete coverage of the country’s hospitals for the period 2002-2005. In 2006-2007, for the first time, all general hospital and paediatric hospital emergency departments in the Republic of Ireland contributed data to the Registry. Thus, for 2006-2007 the Registry achieved complete national coverage of hospital-treated deliberate self harm.
