Online DBT Skills & Groups for the Life You Want to Live!

DBT Assist provides access to web-based DBT, DBT-TI and RO-DBT Skills. We have been continuously developing our approach with research as well as feedback of participants & clinicians since 2004.


What We offer

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) & Radically Open DBT (RO-DBT) Groups

DBT Assist offers online groups that are designed to be engaging and interactive to enhance an individual's capacity to acquire DBT and/or RO-DBT Skills! Through DBT Assist individuals can attend groups online and continue with their current individual therapist or commence treatment with one of our Australian DBT Institute credentialed DBT and/or RO-DBT practitioners!

DBT & RO-DBT Trained Mental Health Professionals

We’re passionate about ensuring individuals attending our groups gain essential DBT skills. That’s why we invest in our facilitators development, research and supervision so they can pass on their expertise and knowledge to participants.

Well Researched and Reviewed Online Groups

 Since 2004 we have been researching and continuously developing our DBT programs through feedback of participants & clinicians. We value lived experience as much as the evidence base and include participants and their carers in quality improvement activities!

At least 12 DBT & RO-DBT groups each week!

We deliver over 12 DBT groups each week through Australian DBT Institute credentialed DBT practitioners and skills trainers! Our programs on DBT Assist include general DBT Groups, Youth Based DBT Groups, Carer & Friends DBT Groups and RO-DBT Groups!
