I am about to start work on a new programme with Bristol's Golden Key Project. Golden Key is an innovative and dynamic citywide partnership of people with experience of prison, homelessness, long-term mental health problems and drug and alcohol dependency, service providers, commissioners and city leaders. Led by Bristol charity, Second Step, and with an eight-year programme it is a unique opportunity to change the way services respond to people with complex and multiple needs and unlock services people so desperately need. As part of the Winter Pressures initiative I will be supporting the Suicide and Self Harm Programme linked in with Bristol's main hospitals A & E departments.
We will be looking to provide brief and long term interventions to a range of clients with complex needs. An excellent team has been appointed and we have begun to develop a treatment manual but will be looking to develop the treatment base. The programme will initially run until the end of June.
