Abstract

Suicide and self-harm in prisons are serious problems in Australasia and in many other jurisdictions. Psychologists frequently have a role in advising on, and assisting in, the prevention of such behaviours. Few guidelines and formal statements of good professional practice exist for such work. In this paper we review the published literature and current prevention practices with a view to devising recommendations for good practice in management and prevention.
