Mental health experts are finding that DBT skills training can be used in outpatient psychiatric care to address symptoms of depression and other mental illnesses. This modified form of cognitive behavioral therapy focuses on “accepting” uncomfortable and unhealthy behaviors and thoughts instead of struggling against them. Join us for this 2-part series to understand why DBT skills can be helpful to youth with severe depression.
