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.

NEABPD Logo

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.
