Lynn Courey, Founder and President of The Sashbear Foundation

Lynn Courey lost her daughter Sasha in 2011.  Sasha died by suicide after a short time in treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder.  Hear how Lynn and her husband started a Foundation that offers skills and hope to families struggling with emotional dysregulation and Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD).  They made the decision, even in their grief, to change the landscape of DBT therapy in Canada by becoming facilitators of the Family Connections Program shortly after Sasha died.  Their passion has resulted in a Foundation in Sasha's name called Sashbear.  

Their work is changing lives every day by bringing HOPE to those suffering with BPD (and their families) that they can have a life worth living.
