Who we are

The Complex Psychological Interventions (CPI) Service offers a range of activities to support psychologically informed care within the secondary mental health service. CPI has a strong presence in several Bristol Mental Health services. We also offer additional support, through supervision and training, to a variety of partner organisations.

CPI is comprised of multidisciplinary professions, including Clinical Psychologists, Arts Psychotherapists, Medical Psychotherapists and Specialist Nurses. Staff are located in a central hub (at Callington Road Hospital), as well as at community mental health team bases. CPI provides a range of services, both direct to clients, and supportive functions to staff teams that are designed to enhance the interventions delivered by teams, as well as contributing to the resilience and wellbeing of staff.

CPI offer complex assessment and formulation, as well as the provision of a range of therapies, including specialist CBT, psychotherapy, arts psychotherapist, family therapy, and Mentalisation Based Therapy (MBT) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT). Therapy is offered both in individual and group formats.

"I felt that the team helping me was making me feel that things will get better. I feel like the group sessions were very helpful and made me not feel alone."
