EMBRACE Pittsburgh

EMBRACE will provide in-person and online educational and experiential opportunities for Pittsburghers to learn and practice self-care while engaging with their communities. The program is based on the proven and effective tenets of dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). EMBRACE Pittsburgh’s program resources include many "skills and drills" focused on learning to reduce daily stress, and to be mindful, empathetic, and accepting of yourself and others.

Founding Partners

This new program has been in development during the past 18 months and is now being launched in the community with Pittsburgh’s professional and collegiate sports teams and founding partners including: the Pittsburgh Steelers, Pittsburgh Penguins and Pittsburgh Pirates, University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon University, and numerous other community organizations.
