Summary:This project will estimate the prevalence of chronic pain in people who attend emergency departments (ED) with suicidal behaviours or self-harm. It will also investigate the feasibility of offering information, in the ED setting about online interventions for the treatment of chronic pain, depression and /or anxiety. Individuals attending ED with self-harm or suicidal behaviours will be offered the opportunity to self-enrol in a freely-available clinician-supported intervention for chronic pain, depression and /or anxiety delivered by the digital mental health service MindSpot.
This study will assess the extent to which offering information about these interventions in ED results in individuals self-referring to the service, and engaging in treatment.
