DBT Changes Lives

There are so many stories about how DBT has changed lives and provided many with hope. More of these success stories are told by clients who have received DBT.

While we celebrate those whose lives have been transformed by DBT, there are still so many who are under-served and not receiving critical help.

Your generosity helps expand DBT education and training, provide compassionate resources to those who suffer, and support new research. Together, we make this life-changing and effective treatment accessible and help those suffering find renewed lives.

Help the Linehan Institute impact lives.

If you did not get the opportunity to donate at the Benefit, you can still make an online donation.

The Linehan Institute was founded by Marsha Linehan, PhD, ABPP, Professor of Psychology at the University of Washington. Dr. Linehan has dedicated her life to working with people whose lives are at risk due to crippling and incapacitating psychological problems. Dr. Linehan is the treatment developer and driving force behind Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). In clinical trials around the world, DBT has been shown to cut suicide attempts in half and reduce psychiatric hospitalization. It has also been found effective at treating BPD, substance dependence, depression, PTSD, and eating disorders. You can read more about Dr. Linehan’s amazing, personal journey as featured in The New York Times.
