This executive summary provides an overview of the findings of the comprehensive practice orientated literature review undertaken by the Knowsley Self Harm and Suicide Amongst Young \ud People workforce project team at the University of Salford. The emerging themes important to the \ud future development of practice recommendations for standards of practice across the domains of \ud individual clinical practice, operational service delivery & service design are presented, followed by \ud the completed project outputs that were developed from these recommendations. A summary of \ud further actions agreed by the Knowsley locality in order to continue to process of implementation \ud beyond the life of the project, is provided. \ud The full literature review, presented later in the project report is based on a review and synthesis of \ud a comprehensive search and critical review of quantitative and qualitative research, in the field of \ud self-harm and suicide in children and young people, with specific and related policies, clinical \ud guidelines, expert clinical opinion and relevant organisational briefings. \ud Issues of language, definition and the sensitive application of these have been identified as \ud important precursors to effective organisational strategies for addressing the issue of self-harm and \ud suicide (R. Coll. Psych., 2010; Allen 2007). For the purpose of this report the definition adopted in \ud the NICE clinical guidelines for the management of self-harm (2011; 2004) will be utilised: An expression of personal distress, usually made in private, by an individual who hurts him \ud or herself. The nature and meaning of self-harm, however, vary greatly from person to person. In \ud addition, the reason a person harms him or herself may be different on each occasion and should not \ud be presumed to be the same.
