To evaluate the clinical and cost-effectiveness of a youth culturally adapted manual assisted therapy (YCMAP) in Pakistani Adolescents with a history of self-harm


Globally suicide is the second leading cause of death in young people 15-29 years of age. A recent review indicated that the reported suicide rates in South Asia are high compared to the global average. These figures are likely to be an under estimate since suicide data from many Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs) is lacking. There is little official data on suicide from Pakistan, where suicide and self-harm remains as criminal act and socially, religiously condemned. However, there is accumulating evidence that both self-harm and suicide rates have been increasing in Pakistan.

This is the first RCT of a psychological intervention for self-harm in children and young people in Pakistan. It follows from the work of "Multicentre RCT to evaluate the clinical and cost effectiveness of culturally adapted manual assisted psychological intervention"(CMAP) trial currently taking place in adults who have self-harmed in Pakistan, by evaluating whether a similar intervention, adapted for children and adolescents, could be clinically and cost effective.
