About: Sligo Adult Community Mental Health Services

(as a service user),

I was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder in 2013. I started a group Dialectical behavior therapy every Thursday for a year in 2014 including one to one therapy another day throughout the week. It completely changed my life. I can't express how much I appreciate all the therapists that helped me at that point in my life and how thankful I am. They are a wonderful group of people, very understanding, welcoming, friendly, encouraging and I learnt a lot of skills from them to manage my emotions and give me a different outlook on life. DBT is a brilliant therapy and it definitely helped me turn my life around. I hope it does the same for others.
