In 2014 CCMD set up a Suicide and Self-Harm satellite group, based at the College of Medicine at Swansea University. Led by Professor Keith Lloyd and Associate Professor Ann John, 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:
- Development of author and editorial capacity
- Undertaking 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.
