In this episode, we're thrilled to welcome Kimberley Irwin and Ian Graham from Change Mental Health in Scotland to talk about the Distress Brief Intervention (DBI) Programme, which was developed and first piloted in 2016 in parts of Scotland to respond to the needs of people experiencing distress.

DBI is now an established part of mental health support in Scotland.  The program was highlighted as a model for a similiar service in Victoria in recommendation 27 of the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health system.

ermha365 provides mental health and disability support for people in Victoria and the Northern Territory. Find out more about our services at our website.
