ABOUT Family ConnectionsTM
Family Connections™ 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.
The Family Connections™ program is provided in Canada by The Sashbear Foundation. The Family Connections™ program was developed by practicing clinicians/researchers (Drs. Fruzzetti and Hoffman) and modified in consultation with family members. It is coordinated internationally by NEABPD.
In Lower Mainland BC, Family Connections™ is offered by The Sashbear Foundation in partnership with Fraser Health Authority.
