We continue to try and improve our access to BPD treatment services. Intake occurs on prescheduled days which we publicize on this site. Individuals are asked to check the website at the beginning of each month for any updates on the dates of our next intakes. We continue to try and improve the telephone system and ask for your patience in trying to get through to us on an intake day. We know that it can be frustrating to try to reach us as we receive a high volume of calls.
The clinic is currently offering 20 week skills groups. This treatment is a 20-week group (two hours, once weekly) that provides training in Dialectical Behavior Treatment (DBT) skills to help people who have BPD make positive changes in their lives. Skills taught in the group include: mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance and interpersonal effectiveness. Individuals first attend an assessment meeting to confirm the treatment will be helpful for their individual needs.
Please note: Currently, space is only available in the 20 week skills treatment groups which requires you to be seeing an external therapist who agrees to see you at least twice a month during the skills group. At this time we are unable to accept referrals if you do not have a community therapist.
Due to the large volume of people who are still waiting to start the 20 week skills group please check back at the beginning of June to see when we will be holding the next intake day.
If you have any questions please call 416-535-8501 extension 32437 and press 5. Your call will be returned by the intake nurse.
Psycho-Educational Support Group for Family and Friends of People with BPD
This is a 12-week group based on the Family Connection treatment program. It is designed to help friends and loved ones of those with BPD develop a better understanding of the disorder and learn skills to respond effectively in difficult situations, improve their relationships and manage stress.
How to refer:
We have recently revised our intake process for this group. Intake is now done exclusively by email. Please read below for details on when the upcoming groups will take place, and how to apply for the Family Connections Group.
The Spring group is now full. Please check back on May 15, 2017 when we will be opening registration for our summer group.
Please note that we will do our best to accommodate everyone, but space is limited to approximately 12 people per group.
