  • Perceived effectiveness for Depressed mood: Moderate

Advice & Tips: I highly recommend a partial hospitalization treatment especially if one hasn't been hospitalized before. It was very helpful in getting me prepared for longer treatment and educating me on how to utilize the treatment there. I learned a lot of different skills I wasn't familiar with, and have been very helpful in my daily life. This program was at McLean Hospital.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Borderline Personality Disorder: Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Advice & Tips: DBT helped me learn skills to help me regulate my emotions. As a consequence I have stopped all self-harming behaviors. This is a huge accomplishment for me because I had been injuring myself for a long time. The most important thing was making the commitment to show up every week for the group therapy sessions and making the weekly appointments with your individual therapist. You have to make a conscious commitment to learn the skills and actually apply them in your life. It works if you work it!
Cost: < $25 monthly

Nov 7, 2009 (Started Apr 23, 2009)

  • Perceived effectiveness for Borderline Personality Disorder: Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 2.5 hr Weekly
Advice & Tips: This treatment was prescribed by my doctor to help treat borderline personality disorder so that I might stop my self-injurious behavior that often accompanies this disorder. This group requires a year-long commitment and meets weekly for two and a half hours. During the week we are responsible for keeping up a diary card which is gone over in individual therapy meetings. So far my incidents of self-injury are way down as well as my suicidal urges. It has been an excellent treatment.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Support mental / emotional health: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for Anxious mood: Moderate
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: 120 min Weekly
Advice & Tips: I never thought group therapy would work for me, especially something based on DBT. I don't have BPD (borderline personality disorder, or emotional intensity disorder as the literature we used prefers the term) but I found these skills to be incredibly helpful and absolutely essential to my continued functioning.
