Borderline Personality Disorder Support Group

B P D C o n n e c t s a n d P i e c e o f M i n d C o u n s e l l i n g
A support group dedicated to those who directly or indirectly suffer with
anxiety, depression and/or Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD).

What is Borderline Personality Disorder?
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a psychological disorder that, through
its very intense emotional turmoil, mood swings, and instability, can be very
unsettling to the lives of those affected by it and those living it.

For those experiencing the symptoms of BPD, it can feel like there is no hope.
But, with the right treatment and recovery plan, you can learn to cope with your
symptoms so they no longer disturb the lives of others or your own.

Our Approach
Our main treatment approach is Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical
Behaviour Therapy (DBT).

CBT is a type of therapy used for those who have difficulty understanding their
thoughts, emotions and behaviours.

DBT is a type of therapy used for those who experience very intense emotions
and have challenges with impulsive behavior, difficulties in relationships and
feeling lost with their own identity.

Our support group sessions are held on the third Thursday of each
month. Meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. and are held for one hour.

Where are we? 100 Matheson Blvd, Suite 203 Mississauga, Ontario L4Z 2G7

Please bring a pen and paper along with you.
Refreshments will be provided.

Please contact (647) 680-7327 OR (647) 239-7480

You know that you’re in a good group when…

  1. You feel safe to open up and talk
  2. You feel supported
  3. You can learn, give, and receive
  4. You can laugh and share in laughter
  5. You can make friends
  6. You can be a leader too (i.e. you can take on responsibilities in the group)
  7. You feel safe to address feelings of tension or conflict as they arise
  8. You can leave the group or rejoin when you want (i.e. you know that the group will be sensitive to any health/life challenges that might make it difficult to attend each and every group)*
  9. You and other members are supported to grow and graduate from the group (i.e. the  group creates formal and informal opportunities to celebrate your growth)
  10. You notice that the group allows its members to continually evaluate and make changes to the group, as its members change and/or develop
  11. You know that it feels right for YOU
