About: Sligo/Leitrim Mental Health Services

(as a service user),

I've just completed fully dbt today. I have to say it's an amazing service. I was offered it so many times and refused but I'm so glad to have been offered again to which I accepted. All the therapists are amazing they go above and beyond to help you. I thought when group went back in person I did the last 2 modules in person I thought I wouldn't be able.

But the therapists made it so relaxing and always made sure you were OK. I had Joanne as my individual therapist and she is an amazing therapist she's everything you could ask for in a therapist. Dbt isn't just for 12 months it's for life I will take this right through life. I'm a happier more content young woman after doing this programme. It can be intense but just ask any therapists for help and they will give you guidance  they are  amazing people I'm not going to name them all as I might forget someone but to ye all keep doing what yere doing ye are helping people with real struggles. My dbt journey has been a success. Thank you to you all and a massive thank you to Joanne I will never be able to thank her but I think she knows how grateful I am.
