[WESTPORT, 10/13/2201] -- The pandemic has, more than ever, highlighted the importance of mental health care. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 40% of U.S. adults struggle with mental health or substance use.

What is DBT?
Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) is a modified type of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) that helps individuals cope with stress and regulate emotions, in turn improving their relationships with other people.
The term “dialectical” stems from the idea that bringing opposing concepts together, like change and acceptance, can bring positive outcomes than either one alone.
DBT was originally intended as a treatment for people with borderline personality disorder (BPD), but it has been found helpful in addressing the following mental health issues:
● Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
● Suicidal Thinking
● Eating Disorders
