Self-harm and suicide in males compared to females


In the UK, men are three times more likely to die from suicide than women, despite women being two times more likely to self-harm or attempt suicide than men (the two biggest risk factors for future death by suicide). 

This PhD study is looking at self-harm and suicide in males compared to females, with a view to addressing this discrepancy. This will start with a systematic review (and meta-analysis) on the effectiveness of psychosocial interventions for self-harm in males compared to females.
