The first inquiry into self-harm among young people in the UK
was launched at the House of Commons on Tuesday.
Jointly run over two years by the Mental Health Foundation and
the Camelot Foundation, the inquiry will research the incidence,
causes and treatment of self-harm among 11-25 year olds. The UK has
the highest self-harm rate in Europe.
