• Objectives –To conduct a 1-year evaluation of James’ Place, a suicidal crisis centre delivering a clinical intervention in a community setting.
• Design – A case series study, following men entering the service during the first year of operation.
• Participants – Men experiencing a suicidal crisis referred to the service (N=265), with N=176 going on to engage in therapy.
• Intervention – The James’ Place Model is a therapeutic intervention offered to men who are in a suicidal crisis. Trained therapists provide a range of therapeutic approaches and interventions, focusing on decreasing suicidal distress and supporting men to develop resilience and coping strategies.
• Main outcome measures - CORE-34 Clinical Outcome Measure (CORE-OM).
• Results - For all subscales of the CORE-OM there was a significant reduction in mean scores between assessment and discharge (p <0.001), with all outcomes demonstrating a large
effect size. All reductions illustrated a clinically significant change or a reliable change.
• Conclusions - Our results support the use of the James’ Place Model for men in suicidal
distress to aid in potentially preventing suicides in this high risk group of the population.
