7th Annual Borderline Walk for Sashbear
Join the 7th Sashbear 5km Walk Sunday May 26, 2019 and help raise awareness about Emotion Dysregulation.
The walk is a symphony of families, people with lived experience, leading mental health providers, organizations, entertainers, mindfulness practitioners and educators.
All funds raised by the Sashbear Walk go towards supporting Sashbear programs. The signature program is Family Connections™, a Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) skills-based Peer-to-Peer program which provides skills to families. There is no need for a referral or diagnosis and the program is free. Sashbear understands that families are on the front line in the battle to fight mental illness and they need skills and understanding. The Sashbear program is in high demand as many health providers such as CAMH, SickKids, and the Canadian Mental Health Association are referring families to Sashbear.
The Sashbear Foundation is leading the drive to expand access to the Family Connections™ program across Canada. Programs are now running in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Quebec.
