Two events coming up featuring findings from the SASH Research Project.

31st October is the launch of the project findings, and the animated film, made by the wonderful Yasmin. The event sold out within a fortnight (100 tickets!) – really looking forward to sharing some of the findings with everyone.

Also speaking at the launch are Angela Voulgari from Penumbra, and Lisa Aitken, Choose Life Renfrewshire.

I’ve been putting the finishing touches to two publications – one a short leaflet which covers some of the headline findings; and another longer briefing which has a lot more detail. These will be published on the 31st and available for all who attend. There will also be extra copies available, and both will be online as well.

24th November is another event where I’ll be talking about some of the findings. This event is aimed at policy-makers and researchers. Also speaking is Naomi Salisbury, of Self-Injury Support (formerly Bristol Crisis Service for Women). The title of my talk is ‘Secrets and Lies: The challenges of ‘just talking to someone’ about self-harm for young people aged 16 and under’.

Registration is now open for the launch event on 31st October, 2-5pm at the University of Edinburgh.

Places are limited, so registration is essential.

All welcome, and the event is totally free!

After a long summer break, I’m getting ready to do some more group discussions this Autumn. Looking forward to hearing more people’s views and opinions on self-harm, drug and alcohol use.

In other news, I’m heading to York next week to present a paper at the British Sociological Association’s Medical Sociology Group Conference. The talk is about diagnosis and ‘non-suicidal self-injury’ (a type of self-harm that is being proposed as a psychiatric diagnosis in the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual). It is mainly based on some of my other projects, but I use a few ideas that have come directly from the SASH research project.

Finally – thanks to anyone who has ‘liked’ the Facebook page! It is becoming a slightly less lonely page now!
