These can be accessed through regular posts on our Facebook page (search First Floor Program Salvation Army).
Commencing: Wednesday, April 29, (6:00-8:00pm), a FREE 12-week Program for family members and carers of loved ones who experiences BPD, BPD symptoms or emotional dysregulation, will also be conducted on line.
The Family Connections program is designed to provide parents, spouses, adult children, and siblings the knowledge and skills that will be helpful to them for their own wellbeing in living with a relative with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). The program also helps those relatives build a support network with other individuals with a relative with BPD.
