DBT at MHS

Since 2002, MHS has provided intensive Dialectical Behavior Therapy services for individuals with significant difficulties in daily functioning. Many of our clients struggle with severe depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, relationship problems, and safety issues that require ongoing monitoring and treatment. Our programs can be an alternative to frequent hospitalizations by providing skills training and support designed to manage emotions, thoughts, behaviors, and crises while remaining safe in the community. We collaborate with our clients and their treatment teams with the goal of long-term symptom reduction and improved mental health.

MHS is Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) certified and a nationally accredited provider of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), with treatment clinics in the West Metro, Northwest Metro, East Metro and Central Metro of the Twin Cities. As a leader in practice-based evidence, MHS tracks clinical outcomes with the Treatment Outcome Package and a longitudinal hospitalization study. Our outcome data shows that our clients achieve clinically significant improvement in depression, anxiety, and substance use, and that our clients who have a history of hospitalization show a statistically significant reduction in hospitalization rates. MHS clients also rate our quality of services and therapist skill level above industry benchmarks in client satisfaction.
