    • The National Collaborating Centre for Mental Health is seeking service user and carer experiences to inform the NICE guideline on the longer term care of people who self-harm  

      The National Collaborating Centre for Mental Health is developing a NICE clinical guideline for the longer term treatment and care of people who self-harm. The guideline will make recommendations to the NHS based on the best research evidence available. 
      In the guideline we would like to include the experiences of people who do self-harm (or have done so in the past), together with their views on treatment and services. Therefore we are asking people with the relevant experience and their carers to write personal accounts (500-1000 words). This could describe your self-harming behaviour, when you first saw someone about this behaviour, the treatments you were offered and whether treatment helped you. We are particularly interested in the care and treatment you received after you were initially treated in A&E, by ambulance services or any other service. This would include any psychological therapy or drug treatment you were offered. 
      If you are a carer, you may wish to describe your caring role, any support you have received, in what way your life has been affected, and your views on the person’s treatment. If you find it difficult to write your personal account, you could ask your family or healthcare professional for assistance. 
      If your personal account is printed in the guideline your identity will not be disclosed unless you specifically request otherwise.
