• Family Connections - Skills for Family & Friends Supporting Loved Ones Struggling with Mental Illness

The Sashbear Foundation and Alberta Health Services are pleased to offer FAMILY CONNECTIONS™ a scientifically proven, skills-based program delivered in once-a-week evening sessions spanning 12-weeks. The program is based on Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and is designed specifically for family members and friends of those struggling with emotional dysregulation (intense feelings of sadness, shame, anger, anxiety, impulsivity, mood swings and/or suicidal ideation). Delivered by trained peer facilitators who have "lived experience" using these skills in their own families, the program teaches practical coping and communication skills to help participants regain balance and manage emotional reactions to challenging situations more effectively.

This Fall, sessions will run Thursday evenings, from 6:00pm-8:00pm beginning September 12th to November 28th. Participants must attend all sessions.

To register for the program, or learn more about other upcoming program dates, please visit the event website: https://sashbear.wildapricot.org/AB-Groups-Upcoming/ Once you indicate interest in a session, the Sashbear Foundation Team will ask you to confirm your ability to attend all sessions.
