  School Suicide & Self Harm Thursday 27 February 2003  
New research into teenage suicide attempts show a higher incidence of overdosing during school term time. Worryingly there seems to be an actual increase in the number of youngsters - mainly girls - trying to harm themselves while they're actually at school.

We'll be talking to one school who are leading the way in trying to deal with the problem and Dr Keith Hawton, Professor of Psychiatry and Head of the Centre for Suicide Research in Oxford, Jane Ralphson, a Pastoral Care Manager and counsellor Dr Petra Boynton join Jenni to discuss.
