There is no specific type of schizophrenia that is associated with self-harm. Self-harm in schizophrenia is generally associated with delusions.

Because self-harm in schizophrenia is associated with delusions, patients with paranoid schizophrenia or undifferentiated schizophrenia may be more likely to self-harm than patients with other types of schizophrenia.
