Yes DBT was originally designed for those people suffering with Borderline but it’s also used for people who have difficulty regulating their emotions as seen with Bipolar disorder.
My therapist used DBT techniques on me because I have frequent mood shifts.

@ish, I think it can help but not to the point of no longer needing a mood stabilizer.
