Abstract

Background: Self-harm is an extremely common reason for hospital presentation. There have, however, been few estimates of the hospital costs of assessing and treating self-harm. Such information is essential for planning services and to help strengthen the case for investment in actions to reduce the frequency and impact of self-harm.
