Self-harm and homeless adults.
Plcuk, G.~~Lee, K.~~Parks, R.
Homelessness is associated with an increased incidence of mental illness and risk of self-harm, including suicide. Those with histories of self-harm started using significantly more substances since becoming homeless and were younger when they first became homeless. They were also significantly more likely to have a past psychiatric admission and thoughts of self-harm in the past year. Conclusion: Self-harm is common among homeless adults and linked to long-term and enduring social and mental health concerns.
