Description:
This is the tenth annual report from the National Registry of Deliberate Self Harm. It is based on data collected on persons presenting to hospital emergency departments as a result of deliberate self harm in 2011 in the Republic of Ireland. The Registry had near complete coverage of the country’s hospitals for the period 2002- 2005, and since 2006, all general hospital and paediatric hospital emergency departments in the Republic of Ireland have contributed data to the Registry. In 2011, the Registry recorded 12,216 presentations to hospital due to deliberate self harm nationally, involving 9,834 individuals. Taking the population into account, the agestandardised rate of individuals presenting to hospital following deliberate self harm in 2011 was 215 per 100,000, a significant 4% decrease on the rate in 2010. This decrease follows four successive increases in the rate of persons presenting to hospital following deliberate self harm in Ireland.
