James' Place model proven to reduce suicidality in men
Independent research carried out by lead researcher Dr Pooja Saini, Reader in Suicide and Self Harm Prevention at Liverpool John Moores University and released today shows that the James’ Place treatment model reduces suicidality in men and makes a life-changing difference to individuals, their families, their communities and the wider system. The research shows that on average men who have attended James’ Place Liverpool between 2018-2021 experienced a clinically and statistically significant positive change in their mental wellbeing following their treatment and reduced levels of psychological distress. These men were no longer considered to be in suicidal crisis due to a reduction in thoughts around suicide, plans and intention to act on suicidal thoughts, and risk-taking behaviour. The research also showed there was a statistically significant reduction in feelings of entrapment, a key indicator of psychological distress. Read the full report on our impact page.
