Distress Brief Intervention

Distress Brief Intervention

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, resulting in the DBI pilot. DBI consists of two parts, with part 1 seeing trained front-line health, police, paramedic and primary care staff help ease any individual. They then ask the person if they would like further support.
