Distress Brief Intervention

by Penumbra Claimed

Distress Brief Interventions (DBIs) are an innovative way of supporting people in distress.

The need to improve the response to people presenting in distress has been strongly advocated by people who have experience of distress – and by front line service providers and is supported through a review of available literature .

The DBI Programme is a 53 month (November 2016 to March 2021) initiative which emerged from the Scottish Government’s work on the Suicide Prevention and Mental Health strategies which showed that people in distress require improved
co-ordination across agencies, quicker access to support and more consistency in the compassion they receive.
