Research Project

The Bridging Project

The Bridging Project focused on ‘building bridges’ between specialist and community providers of mental health services in relation to people with complex communication needs.

The project has produced a number of resources including the following:

  • counselling guidelines for community counselling practitioners
  • an accessible booklet on grief and loss
  • accessible fact sheets covering a range of mental health topics

This project was undertaken by Scope in collaboration with the Centre for Developmental Disability Health Victoria, Monash University.
