DBT Peer Connections (DBTPC) is a grassroots peer support community created by Rachel Gill for peers who are dedicated to improving their emotional health through daily dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) skills practice. DBTPC provides a means for peers to cultivate relationships with others committed to learning, practicing, educating others about, and building mastery of the 4 DBT skill sets: core mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. DBTPC is committed to eliminating stigma against people with emotional health challenges by creating hope through sharing stories of recovery and advocating in our communities, online and through political action. DBTPC honors, values, and practices compassion; non-judgment; cultural, ethnic, spiritual diversity; and equally respects that every person has a wise mind.
