Considerable concern has been expressed in recent years about the incidence of suicide in prison. Although it might be thought that the controlled nature of the prison environment should make suicide preventable, the rate in prisons seems to be higher than in the outside world. Furthermore the state is seen as responsible for the welfare of those it has committed to prison. This report provides a review of studies of suicide in prison and the methodological problems involved in conducting such research. It goes on to look at studies of self-injury in prison and discusses the problem of defining suicide attempts, as distinct from self-multilation. Final chapters address the various strategies employed in suicide prevention in prison and make suggestions for further research.
