Risks for repeat behaviour are heightened in the aftermath of an index episode. There is no consensus on the most effective type of intervention to reduce repetition. Treatment options for patients who do not require secondary mental health services include: no support, discharge to General Practitioner, or referral to primary care mental health support services. The aim of this study is to assess whether it is feasible to deliver a brief intervention after an episode and whether this can reduce depressive symptoms and increase sense of wellbeing for patients who self harm.Methods: This is a non-blinded parallel group randomised clinical trial. One hundred and twenty patients presenting with self harm and/or suicidal ideation to mental health services over a twelve month period who are not referred to secondary services will be randomised to either intervention plus treatment as usual (TAU), or control (TAU only). Patients are assessed at baseline, 4 weeks and 12 weeks with standardised measures to collect data on depression, wellbeing, and service use. Primary outcome is depression scores; secondary outcomes are wellbeing scores and use of services. The findings will indicate whether a rapid response brief intervention is feasible and can reduce depression and increase wellbeing among patients who self harm and do not require secondary services. Ethics and dissemination: Ethical approval was granted by the UK National Health Service (NHS) Ethics Committee process (REC 6: 14/WA/0074). The findings of the trial will be disseminated through presentations to the participating Health Board and partners, peer-reviewed journals, national and international conferences. Trial registration: The trial is registered with the International Standard Randomised Controlled Trial Network (ISRCTN 76914248); and UK Clinical Research Network (16229)</abstract><type>Journal Article</type><journal>BMJ Open</journal><volume>6</volume><journalNumber>9</journalNumber><paginationStart>e012043</paginationStart><publisher/><issnElectronic>2044-6055</issnElectronic><keywords>Randomised controlled trial, Self Harm, Suicide, Intervention, Social wellbeing, Social support, Social networks, Depression</keywords><publishedDay>0</publishedDay><publishedMonth>0</publishedMonth><publishedYear>0</publishedYear><publishedDate>0001-01-01</publishedDate><doi>10.1136/bmjopen-2016-012043</doi><url>http://bmjopen.bmj.com/content/6/9/e012043</url><notes/><college>COLLEGE NANME</college><department>Public Health, Policy and Social Sciences</department><CollegeCode>COLLEGE CODE</CollegeCode><DepartmentCode>HPP</DepartmentCode><institution>Swansea University</institution><lastEdited>2020-09-15T08:23:07.3062615</lastEdited><Created>2016-09-02T15:43:40.3931267</Created><path><level id="1">College of Human and Health Sciences</level><level id="2">Centre for Social Work and Social Care Research</level></path><authors><author><firstname>Nilufar</firstname><surname>Ahmed</surname><orcid>0000-0003-4274-801X</orcid><order>1</order></author><author><firstname>Ann</firstname><surname>John</surname><orcid>0000-0002-5657-6995</orcid><order>2</order></author><author><firstname>Saiful</firstname><surname>Islam</surname><orcid>0000-0003-3182-8487</orcid><order>3</order></author><author><firstname>Richard</firstname><surname>Jones</surname><order>4</order></author><author><firstname>Pippa</firstname><surname>Anderson</surname><orcid>0000-0003-2959-2671</orcid><order>5</order></author><author><firstname>Charlotte</firstname><surname>Davies</surname><order>6</order></author><author><firstname>Ashra</firstname><surname>Khanom</surname><order>7</order></author><author><firstname>Shaun</firstname><surname>Harris</surname><orcid/><order>8</order></author><author><firstname>Peter</firstname><surname>Huxley</surname><order>9</order></author></authors><documents><document><filename>0029706-29092016171434.pdf</filename><originalFilename>BMJOpen2016Ahmed.pdf</originalFilename><uploaded>2016-09-29T17:14:34.5300000</uploaded><type>Output</type><contentLength>899571</contentLength><contentType>application/pdf</contentType><version>Version of Record</version><cronfaStatus>true</cronfaStatus><action/><documentNotes>This is an Open Access article distributed in accordance with the Creative Commons Attribution Non Commercial (CC BY-NC 4.0) license, which permits others to distribute, remix, adapt, build upon this work non-commercially, and license their derivative works on different terms, provided the original work is properly cited and the use is non-commercial.
