Abstract

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are key predictors of deliberate self‐harm (DSH). As part of the Northern Ireland Childhood Adversity Study (NICAS) we collected measures of self‐reported ACES (extended ACE‐IQ), DSH, mental health (anxiety, depression, stress), personality (behavioral inhibition, behavioral activation, mental toughness), resilience (Brief Resilience Score) and neurocognitive function (Iowa gambling test‐IGT‐ performance) in a sample of vulnerable young people aged 18–25 yrs (n = 122), and using Hierarchical Logistic Regression tested whether mental health, personality, resilience or neurocognitive function variables mediated the association between ACEs and DSH.
