Congratulations Dr Anvar Sadath and his co-authors who have had their mixed-methods study published in Frontiers in Psychiatry


Physical and mental illness comorbidity among individuals with frequent self-harm episodes: A mixed-methods study

Background: Research has indicated an increased risk of self-harm repetition and suicide among individuals with frequent self-harm episodes. Co-occurring physical and mental illness further increases the risk of self-harm and suicide. However, the association between this co-occurrence and frequent self-harm episodes is not well understood. The objectives of the study were (a) to examine the sociodemographic and clinical profile of individuals with frequent self-harm (regardless of suicidal intent) episodes and, (b) the association between physical and mental illness comorbidity, self-harm repetition, highly lethal self-harm methods, and suicide intent.
