Theme of this match

Self-harm behaviour is a widespread phenomena and challenge in many countries. This match will focus on enabling sharing of knowledge and experience regarding the behaviour and therapy for it.  How can we work with decreasing self-harm behaviour – are there successful preventive initiatives?  What are the main therapies directed towards self-harm behaviour?  How do we design scalable and sustainable organizations and networks in order to establish collaboration between and within sectors to address this population health challenge?
