Family ConnectionsTM Courses in the Greater Toronto Area
ABOUT Family ConnectionsTM
Family ConnectionsTM is a 12-week 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 ConnectionsTM 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.
We offer the Family ConnectionsTM course throughout the Greater Toronto (GTA) area in multiple locations. Typically, classes run three times each year:
