Objective: Risk of suicide attempt, suicidal ideation and deliberate self-harm is high among young people, yet limited evidence exists regarding effective interventions, particularly from randomized controlled trials. The aim of this study was to conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis of all randomized controlled trials testing interventions for adolescents and young adults who have presented to a clinical setting with any of these behaviours. Methods: The Cochrane Central Register of… Expand
Therapeutic interventions for suicide attempts and self-harm in adolescents: systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
A meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) reporting efficacy of specific pharmacological, social, or psychological therapeutic interventions (TIs) in reducing both suicidal and nonsuicidal self-harm in adolescents suggests TIs to prevent self- Harm appear to be effective. Expand
Web-Based and Mobile Suicide Prevention Interventions for Young People: A Systematic Review.
TLDR
There is a paucity of current evidence for online and mobile interventions for suicide prevention in youth, and more high quality empirical evidence is required to determine the effectiveness of these novel approaches to improving suicide outcomes in young people. Expand
Mapping the evidence of prevention and intervention studies for suicidal and self-harming behaviors in young people.
TLDR
The evidence base for SSH interventions in young people is not well established, which hampers best-practice efforts in this area, and promising interventions that need further research include school-based prevention programs with a skills training component. Expand
The treatment of suicidality in adolescents by psychosocial interventions for depression: A systematic literature review
TLDR
There is evidence to suggest that Cognitive Behavioural Therapy interventions produce pre–post reductions in suicidality with moderate effect sizes and are at least as efficacious as pharmacotherapy in reducing suicideality; however, it is unclear whether these effects are sustained. Expand
Suicide prevention strategies revisited: 10-year systematic review.
TLDR
The evidence for restricting access to lethal means in prevention of suicide has strengthened since 2005, especially with regard to control of analgesics and hot-spots for suicide by jumping. Expand
Psychosocial interventions for suicidal ideation, plans, and attempts: A database of randomised controlled trials
TLDR
A database of randomised controlled outcome studies on psychosocial interventions targeting suicidal behaviour and prevention is presented, providing a strong starting point for systematic reviews and meta-analyses of treatments and interventions. Expand
Practitioner review: Self-harm in adolescents.
TLDR
Multisystemic Therapy has shown promise but needs to be evaluated in a sample of adolescents with self- Harm; dialectic behavioural therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy for self-harm require RCTs to evaluate efficacy and effectiveness. Expand
Psychosocial interventions for self-harm, suicidal ideation and suicide attempt in children and young people: What? How? Who? and Where?
TLDR
Face-to-face delivery of therapy has dominated the intervention trials thus far; however, the use of the internet, social media and mobile devices to deliver interventions to young people and other family members allows for a more novel approach to suicide prevention in youth going forward. Expand
A systematic review of school-based interventions aimed at preventing, treating, and responding to suicide- related behavior in young people.
TLDR
The most promising interventions for schools appear to be gatekeeper training and screening programs, however, more research is needed because of a lack of RCTs. Expand
A Youth Suicide Prevention Plan for Canada: A Systematic Review of Reviews
TLDR
A national research-to-practice network that links researchers and decision makers is recommended to implement and evaluate promising interventions to eliminate the use of ineffective or harmful interventions and to clarify prevention intervention effects on death by suicide, suicide attempts, and suicidal ideation.

Psychosocial and pharmacological treatments for deliberate self harm
TLDR
There still remains considerable uncertainty about which forms of psychosocial and physical treatments of self-harm patients are most effective, inclusion of insufficient numbers of patients in trials being the main limiting factor. Expand
Clinical management of deliberate self-harm in young people: the need for evidence-based approaches to reduce repetition.
TLDR
Group therapy, trialled in a RCT, was the only specific programme which led to a significant reduction in rates of repetition of self-harm, and expensive interventions such as intensive aftercare offer no clear benefit over routine aftercare. Expand
Clinical Management of Deliberate Self-Harm in Young People: The Need for Evidence-Based Approaches to Reduce Repetition
TLDR
Group therapy, trialled in a RCT, was the only specific programme which led to a significant reduction in rates of repetition of self-harm, while one clinically controlled trial of intensive intervention resulted in poorer attendance at follow-up. Expand

The Treatment of Adolescent Suicide Attempters study (TASA): predictors of suicidal events in an open treatment trial.
TLDR
The 6-month morbid risks for suicidal events and for reattempts were lower than those in other comparable samples, suggesting that this intervention should be studied further. Expand

TLDR
A picture of the current focus with regard to suicide prevention research is presented, identifying some areas where there are clear gaps and others where relatively greater efforts have been made. Expand
Group therapy for repeated deliberate self-harm in adolescents: failure of replication of a randomized trial.
TLDR
The findings contradict those of the original study, which found group therapy superior to routine care in preventing the recurrence of self-harming behavior in adolescents who had deliberately harmed themselves on at least two occasions. Expand
Suicide Prevention in First Episode Psychosis: The Development of a Randomised Controlled Trial of Cognitive Therapy for Acutely Suicidal Patients With Early Psychosis
TLDR
Early intervention in psychosis for young people reduces the risk of suicide andAugmenting early intervention with a suicide preventative therapy may further reduce this risk. Expand

TLDR
When adolescents who attempt suicide are maintained in treatment, significant improvements in functioning can be realized for the majority of patients. Expand

TLDR
This review of recent studies using a variety of research strategies, both nonpharmacological and pharmacological, particularly at the community level, provides persuasive data that suicide prevention is possible. Expand
