About Us

The Inner City Health Program (ICHP) at SVH run a 15-week skills program based on Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT).  DBT is an evidence based therapy for people with pervasive emotion dysregulation and associated problem behaviours. The group is available for continuing patients of SVH or those who reside in the SVH catchment area who are over 18 years old. 

Group participation involves attendance to weekly, 2.5hr group sessions. Eligibility relies on regular attendance, motivation to undergo treatment for high-risk behaviours, access to (at least fortnightly) individual treatment sessions and the ability to commit to attending the group sober. There is no cost to attend the group therapy program.    

The group is not suitable for those experiencing a current psychosis or with significant cognitive impairment.
