Intentional self-harm and suicidal behaviour in children

Women’s Health Victoria’s submission details how self-harm and suicidal behaviours are serious health issues for young women and men. We highlight how the experience of young women and men is different and recommend that data collection, research and program delivery should reflect this gendered experience.

Submitted to Australia. National Children’s Commissioner. More information about the consultation can be found here.
