Family ConnectionsTM Courses in Alberta

ABOUT Family ConnectionsTM

Family ConnectionsTM is a 24-hour course providing education, skills training and support for people who are in a relationship with someone struggling with emotion dysregulation or mental health issues. It is a peer program led by trained group facilitators who are family members and who have taken the course themselves.

Family Connections is open to anyone 18 years of age and older who has a loved one struggling with mental health issues. The course is not for those who are struggling, only for the family members supporting them.

COURSE SCHEDULE

We offer the course several times a year throughout Alberta, in Calgary, Edmonton, Red Deer and Stony Plain. The course may be delivered as 12 evening classes (in Edmonton), or over two weekends (four days in total).
