Family Support and Education Group

Coming Soon — Contact us to be contacted when this program begins again

Families and loved ones of people with Borderline Personality Disorder often need support themselves.  Understanding the disorder is critical to living with it. Learning the same skills your loved one with BPD is learning in therapy is incredibly valuable in order to coach and support them in creating behavioral change.  Incorporating new ways of validating their experience will lead to improved relationships and living conditions.  In this group, we strive to help families and friends of people with BPD better understand the disorder and empower them to support their loved ones in helpful ways.
