It is well established that young offenders show high rates of mental health problems and are at high risk for suicidal behaviour. Despite this, very little is known about the nature of self harm in young offenders and, crucially, what the best predictors of self harm are in this group. This is due largely to the majority of research so far being atheoretical and using inconsistent measures and definitions of suicidal behaviour. To date there have been no studies of self harm behaviour in community young offenders, a population who have been neglected in research, despite growing evidence that mental health problems and rates of suicidal behaviour are equivalent if not greater in community young offenders than in custody.
