The Self Harm Team/A&E Mental Health Liaison are a team of mental health professionals whose expertise lies in helping people who harm themselves. When a person self harms or takes an overdose, it is often a sign of distress which may call for professional help.
The Team consists of Senior Nurses led by a Lead Practitioner. Trainee Psychiatrists also join the team on a rotational basis and Student Nurses on placement. Referrals to the service are made by ward or department staff at Sunderland Royal Hospital including Accident & Emergency department.
