ABOUT Family ConnectionsTM

Family Connections is an evidence-based program providing education, skills, and support for people in a relationship with someone who has emotion dysregulation, BPD or BPD traits. It is a peer program led by trained group facilitators who are family members and who have taken the course themselves. Family Connections provides: current information and research on BPD, emotion dysregulation and on family functioning; individual coping skills based on Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT); family skills; and group support that builds an ongoing network for family members. 

Family Connections is open to anyone 18 years of age and older who has a loved one with mental health issues.

The Family Connections program is provided in Canada free of charge 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.

Throughout Lower Mainland BC and in the city of Vancouver, Family Connections is offered by The Sashbear Foundation in partnership with Fraser Health Authority and Vancouver Coastal Health Authority.
