Tonight’s encouragement: Whether you are “differently abled” due to mental or physical health issues or a combination » you have a rightful place on this planet. You matter. You count. You are here for a reason. Even on the rough days. Even when things don’t make sense. Even when you feel like you don’t have too much to give. You are here today because you are a survivor! As someone said to me today, “We will have ‘good’ and ‘bad’ days — that applies to everyone — but let’s aim for more of the good.” Debbie

Hello Everyone — we have an online support group starting tomorrow for those loved ones who want support around issues that sometimes come up when in relationship with a sufferer of BPD or other Emotion Regulation issues. (This is open to parents, children, partners, colleagues — anyone). Just in case you know someone who might be interested, here’s the information…

DBT Path will be offering an online weekly drop-in support group for you. You will be able to call in to the meeting or attend online using ear buds and speaking into your device’s microphone. There is also the option to type into the chat box.
We will talk about the issues important to you and your role in your loved one’s life. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions of our licensed therapist Alicia Paz and our peer in recovery from Borderline Personality Disorder, Debbie Corso, in a safe, supportive, private environment.
