Ahead of Bell Let’s Talk Day (hosted on January 26th), Aulneau Renewal Centre has been selected as a recipient of a $25,000 grant to support mental health initiatives for youth.
With the funds, they’re hosting two rounds of Dealing with Difficult Emotions: A DBT Skills Group.
Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based model of therapy intended to encourage people to learn and use skills and strategies through acceptance and change. One group will focus on youth aged 14 to 17, and the other group on youth aged 18 to 29. Both courses began in January and will run for 24 weeks.
