About: Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust / Adult mental health

(as the patient),

I attended a twelve month DBT course that started earlier the previous year until early 2014. It was recommended by my Key worker at the time, Peter. Below is a few words I wish to share as feed back to the DBT course:

A year.

A whole year for me, To commit myself to a self focused course

As I feel right now.

Should I

Will I.

Can I.

I attended an interview with the DBT, Team

Looking at various possibilities of the course and my needs,

Am I ready to commit to doing the course. exposing my weaknes. Am I ready to be honest with myself.

A year,

Fit into the criteria and contract of the DBT course.

A Whole year

Should I. What are the long term benefits.

Can I. Commit, by taken myself serious

Am I. Ready.

At the interview, feeling, relaxed, reassured with the comforting tones and great understanding, from The Facilitators and the use of there professional skills. Helped to remain my thoughts to stay focused on the DBT course. I am glad I attended my Interview.

Given my mental Health and Wellbeing at the time..

Hope and excitement extended my thoughts.

A Whole Year.

Just to think of ME.

A wonderful gift from the DBT Team.

As the Time and year passed by.

My personal energies and understanding towards my wellness surpassed my expectations of the life skills, tools learnt from the DBT Course.

It has become very clear to me, that if it was not for the patience and understanding with good listening skills of the facilitators.

The wellness Tools given within the course.

This course, DBT within itself would not have worked alone.

Without the women running the course. How each and everyone delivered the learning information for the day, I cannot Faulter.

A Year.

A Whole Year.

Looking at new life skills to re-address my thoughts. feelings and well being.

through the group work,

Team work and personal focus was held well with a reasurrance of a safety net from the DBT Team.

I Did.

A Whole Year.

What felt like a life time, yet no time at all.

My Anger, changed to passion.

My Fears, changed to action.

My Wishes. Changed to Hope.

A Whole Year.

No More.

I now commit myself to everyday, every month, every year. A lives Time of learning and re-learning. The few tools given to me by The wonderful women who look after me during the DBT course.

How lovely to receive this feedback, regarding the DBT group run in Keighley.

Our experience of facilitating the group is very positive and the changes we see in our group members is very rewarding.

It is always good to hear how our work has made a difference, and many thanks for taking the time to feedback in such a creative style.
