The Behavioral Research and Therapy Clinics (BRTC), founded in 1980 to develop and evaluate science-based programs for the treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and suicidal behaviors, is directed by Dr. Marsha Linehan and focuses on those who are ordinarily excluded from research programs due to their high risk for suicide and/or treatment failure. The BRTC developed Dialectical Behavior Therapy, which has become the front-line comprehensive treatment for BPD.
The BRTC has a long history and commitment to conducting rigorous science, training young scientists, pulling together collaborative scientific communities, and disseminating science-based treatments to mental health professionals in the community. All donations will be used in support of the BRTC's mission. Specifics examples include sponsoring pilot research, supporting training opportunities for promising young scientists, or dissemination of findings.
