Humber Family Connections is a 12 week group programme for
the ‘supporters’ of individuals who present with difficulties that might be diagnosable as ‘borderline’ or ‘emotionally unstable’ personality disorder. This might be that person’s parent, sibling, partner, friend, son, daughter etc.
The programme is available to anyone registered with a GP in Hull or East Riding CCG areas. The supporter needs to be 18+ years old, but the age of the person they are supporting can be anything.
The supporter can attend the programme irrespective of whether
the supportee is in mental health services or not. The supportee does not attend Family Connections- it is to support the supporters in their own wellbeing and in learning skills themselves. The supportee won’t be informed of the supporter’s attendances, or vice versa.
