About this book

The high rate of suicide and self-harm in prison is of international concern.

Reviews

'It is a long time since I felt genuinely excited by a book on such a sombre topic. However this edited volume is a model of its kind in demonstrating how systematic scientific analysis can be combined with commitment, creativity and the insights of experience in providing positive ways forward in an area that has rarely furnished grounds for optimism...this well-crafted set of contributions...is both practical and thought-provoking, and deserves to be seen as essential reading for anyone concerned with prisons.' - Adrian Needs, University of Portsmouth (formerly of HM Prison Service), UK
