In 2014 CCMD set up a Suicide and Self-Harm Satellite group, based at the College of Medicine at Swansea University.
Led by Professors Ann John and Keith Lloyd, the Satellite facilitates the synthesis, production, and dissemination of high-quality evidence on the effects of interventions and preventive strategies for suicide and self-harm.
Core activities of the Suicide and Self-Harm satellite include:
- Undertake prioritisation exercises to identify high-priority reviews in suicide and self-harm prevention and interventions
- Production and dissemination of high-priority reviews relevant to the field; and translation of this knowledge into policy
