Self-harm is common and associated with adverse outcomes. Research about the risk factors for self-harm has informed the field with regard to clinical interventions that should be delivered for young people who engage in self-harm.

This randomised controlled trial aimed to assess the long-term effects of MHFA training of parents on the mental health of their adolescent children. 384 Australian parents of an adolescent aged 12–15 were randomised to receive either the 14-h Yout...
