Publications for Your Office

In addition to the extensive amount of educational information on, DBSA offers more than three dozen educational brochures on topics from treatment strategies to combating negative self-talk. 

An online DBSA survey revealed that more than half of patients had not been given any written educational materials, and the majority of those who received information said they wished they had received more. DBSA materials are hopeful, helpful and easy to read. Consider keeping a supply of the following brochures in your office so patients can walk away with material to support them between appointments.
