What is this study?

Previous research has examined the suicide risk of the Irish Traveller population, but less is known about self-harm and suicidal ideation among this ethnic minority group, which are established risk factors for suicide.

Project Aim

 This collaborative project with the National Clinical Programme for Self-Harm and Suicide Related Ideation aims to compare the presentation-based self-harm and suicide-related ideation of Traveller to non-Traveller patients and describe any ethnic disparities in the aftercare of their presentation.

Personnel Involved

National Suicide Research Foundation: Dr Katerina Kavalidou, Dr Paul Corcoran, Dr Caroline Daly, Mr Niall McTernan.
