Managing Powerful Emotions Psychoeducational Group
The Personality Disorders Service, part of Providence Care Mental Health Community Services, offers the Managing Powerful Emotions Group: “a 12-week (90-minute) psycho-educational group offered several times a year for individuals who have significant challenges with tolerating their distress and regulating their emotions and behaviour” (source).
To access this service, you will need a referral from a physician. You can find the physician referral form here.
After you have been referred, you will be contacted by the service and invited to attend an information session on the Managing Powerful Emotions Group as a next/early step in the process.
Participating in the Managing Powerful Emotions Group is (at least one) pre-requisite to participating in the Chrysalis Day Program, also offered by the same service.
You can view a list of related groups and programs offered by the Personality Disorder Service here.
(Programs of course may change over time. If you find this link no longer works or any info is out of date, let me know and I will try to update the information.)
