Abstract:

Risk assessment tools are rarely used to predict self-harm, which is a prevalent and costly problem. This study of dually-diagnosed psychiatric inpatients (N=103) examined the utility of participantsÂ’ self-perceptions of risk in predicting self-harm in the community. With a lifetime of experience, individuals may be in a better position than external evaluators to make predictions about their future behavior. Self-perceptions in the hospital predicted self-harm 8-weeks (lag 1; AUC=0.72), and 15-weeks (lag 2; AUC=0.71) after discharge. Self-perceived risk added predictive utility above depression, and captured changes in risk state over time. Self-perceptions may improve self-harm risk assessment in clinical practice.
