Links to all the organizations and professional websites dedicated to Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Borderline Personality Disorder and mental illness
Sites By Clients
I strongly encourage people to visit these websites by people who have recovered from BPD and used their experiences to help other people.
Focus on Clients
These links are for specific, helpful ways of providing services directly focused on the needs of people with BPD and using the DBT Skills.
To find a DBT group or DBT center in your area, you might find it on one of these links. Also, you’ll find links for families of people with BPD
