Mortality amongst young adults with a care history in Northern Ireland

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract

Death by suicide is the leading cause of death in adults aged under 45 years in Northern Ireland (NI). Understanding risk within this population is of vital public health importance in order to target interventions effectively. Research suggests Adverse Childhood Experiences, such as a history in social care, are associated with poorer outcomes in adulthood. Our programme of research explores the mortality of all children born in NI 1970-2015 based on exposure to social services interventions.
