ON-BPD offers an online option for Family Connections using ZOOM Videoconferencing. Although we originally intended this option for persons who are unable to attend in-class courses, it has proven to be extremely valuable during this time of social distancing. The online class allows family members to meet via videoconferencing using a cell phone, tablet or computer.  The course is interactive; leaders are able to interact with participants, and participants are able to see and speak with others during class.

Do you want timely effective access to DBT and other gold standard therapies for BPD? Here is an opportunity for you to voice what families need.

As we head into the Holiday Season and end of 2019, I wish to share highlights of ON-BPD’s journey over the past year and recognize the invaluable contribution of our Board, Course Leaders, Members, and Course Graduates in their support of families and loved ones with BPD in our community.

OTTAWA, October 17, 2018 – Ottawa Network for Borderline Personality Disorder (ON-BPD) is pleased to have received a $12,500 grant from the Bell Let’s Talk Community Fund to support the delivery of the Family Connections™ program by TeleConnections, a first of its kind in Canada.  TeleConnections will provide the 12-week Family Connections™ program in a series of telephone conferences to people outside of Ottawa, particularly those in rural areas of northern and eastern Ontario and western Quebec, with peer-to-peer and family-to-family support groups. 

On Wednesday October 17, 2018, ON-BPD held its first Annual General Meeting (AGM) since incorporating last year.  The organization’s President, Michele Langlois, presided over the meeting and provided members with an update of our accomplishments and described some of our upcoming initiatives, including TeleConnections, which will provide families in rural areas outside Ottawa the opportunity to take the Family Connections™ program by teleconference.
