20 Years Later

Mentalization Based Treatment is gaining momentum globally

Mentalization based treatment (MBT) is particularly effective in treating borderline personality disorder. Clinical trials have shown that symptom improvement can be sustained years after treatment has ended and research studies indicate that MBT is also effective in treating other personality disorders, eating disorders, depression and drug addiction.

Originally developed for adults, MBT has been adapted further to treat a variety of mental health issues and different age groups. As a result, MBT is now used in the treatment of adolescents and children who experience emotional and behavioural problems including anxiety, depression, and relational difficulties.
