We’re glad you’ve found us. If you live in the Ottawa area and have a loved one with BPD, we hope that we will be able to help you.
The main objectives of the Ottawa Network for Borderline Personality Disorder (ON-BPD) are to educate and support relatives of people with BPD and to help family members develop skills for coping. This is done primarily through presenting the Family Connections program.
