DBT course for those with ED starts on April 18th; Family workshop series "Compassion and Chaos" runs first thursday each month: Online DBT starting May 8th; Advanced DBT starts on May 21st

Drop-Ins

This is an opportunity for you to meet with your peers and peer facilitators to chat about the challenges (and successes) you are having on your recovery journey as a person having challenges regulating emotions or as a family member with a loved one with ED challenges (family night and ED nights alternate every other month see below for dates and groups).  The validation and healing that happens when we meet as a community of equals with lived experience can be life-changing.  If you’ve been wanting to practice mindfulness or to try it for the first time, this is the perfect opportunity, as we will begin and end with a short mindfulness exercise each meetup.  Also, if you have questions around how you’re using your DBT skills, or how to support your loved one with DBT skills this is the place to be!  No knowledge of DBT is required.  We ask for a $15 donation to cover the cost of the space.  All facilitators are volunteers.
