Issue 2 of the Distress Brief Intervention (DBI) Programme Briefing

The Scottish Government is focused on improving responses to people in distress. They have created a Distress Brief Intervention (DBI) that provides a framework for improved inter-agency co-ordination, collaboration and co-operation. The shared goal of the framework is to provide a first level compassionate and effective response followed by second level support. The second level support begins within 24 hours and lasts up to a 14 day maximum period. Where necessary, the framework will help to connect with on-going community supports.
