A drop-in group for individuals who have completed a 12+ week dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) skills group. This peer group is dedicated to individuals who would like to meet others, receive support in their day- to- day struggles and to continue practicing their DBT skills. The group meets the second and the fourth Thursday of the month from 7:00pm-8:30pm and runs with an opening mindfulness exercise, an opportunity to share on your week and closes with a mindfulness exercise.
We believe in the wealth of peer’s knowledge, experiences, strength and hope coming together and invite you to join us on our journey.”
Staying in touch with peers will greatly enhance your ability to stay well and be empowered by others who are leading positive, healthy lives by example. Keep up your skills and your mental health and join us for our aftershare group!
