The Family Connections ® course is co-led by two people. Leaders are family members themselves with a relative with borderline personality disorder. All leaders are volunteers and do not receive compensation for their time. Prospective leaders need to have completed Family Connections, TeleConnections or the 12-week program conducted under the auspicies of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Individuals interested in learning more information about becoming a Family Connections leader should e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line FC Leader Information.
