BikeTherapy

BikeRescue... and a whole lot more!

BikeTherapy. The name says it all.


BikeTherapy is Dismantle’s innovative new program that uses engagement with bikes to underpin a therapeutic
engagement, mentoring and development program for up to 10 at risk, disengaged or disadvantaged young
people who may be experiencing mental health challenges.


BikeTherapy is an interwoven application of Dismantle’s proven BikeRescue program along with DBT (Dialectical
Behavioural Therapy), a group and interpersonal therapy process designed to support program participants
who may have challenges related to emotional regulation, communication, interpersonal relations and distress.
