By Their Own Young Hand: Deliberate Self-Harm and Suicidal Ideas in Adolescents

By Keith Hawton; Karen Rodham et al. | Go to book overview

Acknowledgements

Much of this book is based on a study we conducted in schools in England in order to examine the prevalence of deliberate self-harm and thoughts of self-harm in adolescents, and the factors associated with these. This study was made possible by a generous grant from the Community Fund. The study was carried out in conjunction with Samaritans. We acknowledge the support of Simon Armson, Jackie Wilkinson and Su Ray from that organisation. We also thank other members of the advisory group for the study, including the late Richard Harrington and Nicola Madge. The study was conducted in collaboration with the Child and Adolescent Self-harm in Europe (CASE) study. Some of the research methods used for the study were developed through this collaboration. The senior collaborators from the other centres involved in that study are Ella Arensman, Diego De Leo, Sandor Fekete, Kees van Heeringen, Erik Jan de Wilde and Mette Ystgard. Nicola Madge coordinated this group. We thank Philip Robson for help with the development of our measure of self-esteem, Louise Harriss for assistance with some of the analyses, Sue Simkin for helping us in the preparation of the book in several ways, Nicola Madge, Ann McPherson and Anne Stewart for their advice, Sarah Fortune for her comments on part of the manuscript and Tania Castro-Martinez for secretarial support.
