Our Bedford Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) Graduate Peer Support Group is held at the Bedford Wellbeing Centre on Woburn Road in Bedford, from 10.30 am – 12.30 pm on alternate Tuesdays.
This group is for people who have completed DBT Skills training and are at a stage of recovery where they would benefit from ongoing peer support to continue using the skills they have learned to build a life they experience as worth living.
The DBT Graduate Peer Support group will be led by a Peer Support Facilitator from Mind BLMK with lived experience of their own. They will facilitate the sessions specifically for those who have completed DBT skills training or who are about to graduate from the DBT skills course. The Peer Support Facilitator will also be supported by staff from East London NHS Foundation Trust (ELFT).
If you have completed the 6 month DBT Skills Training course and would like to refer yourself (or if you are a professional referring on behalf of someone) to this group please print out and complete the referral form below. You will also need to print out the contract and the safety plan guidance.
