This report is an evaluation of the YARDS project. This project aimed to help young people who had attempted suicide. A number of barriers prevented the achievement of some of the original goals & resulted in a shift in emphasis. It was found that client follow-up & compliance after initial presentation needed to be improved before any therapeutic intervention could be successful. 24 recommendations are made for improving services to youth who self-harm.
