Study hypothesis

The main aim of the study would be to compare the routine clinical care of adolescents who have repeatedly harmed themselves with routine clinical care plus a six month group-based intervention. By the end of the studentship evidence would be gathered to indicate whether this would lead to improvements in depression and suicidal scores and in other areas of psychosocial functioning such as social relationships and whether the intervention would lead to higher levels of client satisfaction than routine clinical care.
