Government hooks up with charities in self-harm enquiry

Government departments and the voluntary sector are to collect evidence for a national inquiry into self-harm among 11-25-year-olds.

Barnardo's, National Children's Bureau, the Self Harm Alliance and the Mental Health Foundation are among the charities involved.

Voluntary sector organisations with personal stories, reports or best practice guidelines are invited to contribute, as are young people, parents, and health and education staff. The Department of Health, the Department for Education and Skills and the Scottish Executive are supporting the campaign.

The inquiry is chaired by Catherine McLoughlin, formerly chair of the St George's NHS Hospital Trust London, and chair of the National Arts in Health Network. The deadline for submissions is 31 May. Go to
