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.
Our next scheduled intake day will be Wednesday October 19, 2016 between 0830-1230. If you are interested in referring yourself to our program and are currently working with a therapist please call back on October 19, 2016 at 416-535-8501 extension 32437 and Press 3. If you get the recorded message please hang up and try again. Meanwhile, if you have other questions, please call the BPD Intake and Information line 416-535-8501 extension 32437 and press 5 to leave a message. Your call will be returned by the intake nurse.
