Abstract

[Extract] Apostolos Tsiachristas and colleagues1 estimated hospital costs of £162 million per year for assessment and treatment of self-harm in England. Australian data² further suggest that hospital costs represent only a small proportion of the true economic impact of self-harming behaviour. The impact of self-harm and suicidal behaviour was quantified in three age cohorts of Australians: 15–19 years, 20–24 years, and 25–29 years (table).
