Review of the National Self-Harm Registry Ireland: Summary

The National Self-Harm Registry Ireland (NSHRI) monitors the incidence of hospital presenting self-harm in the Republic of Ireland. Established in 2000 by the National Suicide Research Foundation (NSRF), the NSHRI has had full coverage of all adult and paediatric hospitals in Ireland since 2006. It is the only national self-harm registry in the world and formed the basis of recent WHO guidance on best practice in establishing and maintaining self-harm registries.
