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, we are not accepting referrals for the treatment in the BPD clinic. This is due to some reorganization of the clinic services that is underway to as well as a substantial wait list that we are working through.
Please check back at the beginning of November 2017 for any updated information about 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.
