Compliance enhancement and self-harm

Some evidence – there is enough evidence to indicate that this can be a helpful treatment option.

Compliance enhancement isn’t a treatment on its own. It would be a type of support you would have at the same time as other treatments to make sure they are as helpful as possible. 

Compliance enhancement aims to support you to attend your treatment sessions. Your professional should talk with you about anything that might make it more difficult for you to complete treatment and work with you to manage these things. Compliance enhancement could also involve home visits from your professionals and your professionals staying in more regular contact with you. 

Treatments outlined on these webpages may not be available in every local area. It’s important that you discuss with your GP or mental health professional the treatment options available to you. You can also search for services near you on our Youth Wellbeing Directory and find out more about referral processes here.
