Abstract
Objectives: The purpose of this presentation is to discuss Sweden’s national recommendations for mental health treatment provided to self-harming individuals in the country. The recommendations were based upon a Self-Harm Quality Standard (2013) published by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) adapted to Swedish health care and cultural context.

Methods: A review and synthesis of scientific literature on self-harm; A review and synthesis of treatment guidelines for self-harm
Results: The recommendations are referred to as a Quality Document within Swedish healthcare, published initially in 2014, with a scientific update in February 2016. The first and primary recommendation relates to meeting self-harming individuals with compassion, respect, and dignity across the individual’s continuum of care. Other recommendations summarize the leading practices and evidence-based literature in relation to acute assessment of mental and physical health, diagnostic evaluation, risk management, treatment planning, treatment itself and continuity of care.
Conclusions: Sweden’s national Recommendations for the treatment of self-harm were published in the development phase of a multi-year national self-harm project. Emerging in part from the Recommendations has been the development of a number of new initiatives, which are summarized and discussed.
