Topic: Mental Health
Type: Report
Region: Republic of Ireland

This is the thirteenth annual report from the National Self-Harm Registry Ireland. It is based on data collected on persons presenting to hospital emergency departments as a result of self-harm in 2014 in the Republic of Ireland. The Registry had near complete coverage of the country’s hospitals for the period 2002-2005 and, since 2006, all general hospital and paediatric hospital emergency departments in the Republic of Ireland have contributed data to the Registry.

Since 2004 the Registry has recorded 101,904 self-harm presentations, involving 63,457 individuals. Such data provides a unique opportunity to establish, at a national level, the patterns of aftercare in hospitals involving non-fatal suicidal behaviour. The Registry data also provides a robust insight in to longitudinal patterns of care for self-harm patients. Therefore, the 2014 Registry report includes a section which provides an overview of trends of self-harm in Ireland between 2004 - 2014, with a specific focus on aftercare of self-harm.
