Our new DBT Graduate Peer Support Group is held at Bedford Wellbeing Centre in Woburn Road in Bedford from 10.30 am – 12.30 pm on alternate Tuesdays.
*Update for Christmas holidays – The first group session in the New Year will be Tuesday, 8 January, 2019. If you’d like to check further dates after that, please contact us for more details.*
Peer Support groups offer a safe space for people to share their own mental health experience and recovery journey and feel heard and supported by others. 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. Once you have filled in the form, please send it back to Sally Thurbon on [email protected] You can also contact Sally on 07903 147675 (please note that messages from this phone are only picked up once a week).
There is more information about DBT on national Mind’s website.
