What is DBT?

Dialectical Behavior Therapy, or DBT, is one of the most researched and effective methods to improve your mental health and wellbeing—like it's precursor, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)—it's grounded on practical life skills that anyone can learn.

TheraHive is the leading educational program for learning DBT skills.

Community of Care

We meet with every client individually before matching them with a Hive which allows us to ensure that members will be compatible with each other and with their coach.

Private and Confidential

Each member of a Hive is committed to maintaining the privacy of all members. You choose how much you want to share, from complete anonymity to full transparency.

What Can TheraHive Help With?

Mental health skills groups have been shown to be effective for a broad range of issues and goals, such as:


Small Classes. Big Benefits.

Our small groups are called “Hives” and include 6 to 10 individuals who are carefully matched with each other to optimize their skill development.

Wired to work for you

Humans evolved in small groups so we’re wired to learn in them.

Research shows that groups of 6 to 10 people are optimally engaged, committed, and effective at achieving shared goals.

Your Hive’s shared goal is your mental health.

Join a Hive From Anywhere

We pull Hives together from a diverse client community which allows us to match complimentary members and optimize the learning outcomes for each individual.

Blended Learning,
Better Outcomes

Top colleges have adopted blended learning because it is more effective, convenient, and flexible for students. Our model empowers you to learn at your own pace so that you can develop a mastery of each skill before layering on the next.

"I’ve never really been good at online courses, I’ve started a few but never finished one. The accountability thing with groups got me through this course and I’m really glad it did."

"The essence of what makes groups work is the experiential nature of the learning and conversation. TheraHive does a great job of preserving the experience in an online setting."

“Eventually, the most important use of the Internet might be to deliver integrated, home-based, case-managed, psychoeducational programs that are combined with some face-to-face contact and support groups.”
