Self Harm – Help SHIELD to improve quality of care.Posted: September 9, 2011
Get involved, come to meetings, new members always welcome.
SHIELD is a three year project to improve the care pathways for people who present to the Emergency Departments after self-harm. They are based in South London and the Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and work in both King’s College and St Thomas’ Hospitals.
Many people can be involved in the clinical care that patients receive when they attend the Emergency Department after self-harming.
This can include staff in the Emergency Departments, the mental health liaison teams at both hospitals and staff from various medical and surgical departments.

If you or anyone you know has been affected by self-harm then SHIELD would welcome your involvement in their project. You could attend SHIELD meetings and give SHIELD advice on how you think services could be improved and be involved in a range of education and training projects. SHIELD meets monthly and always welcome new members.
