We are Borderline Support UK, and we exist to provide information and support to anyone affected by Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), which is sometimes also called Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder (EUPD). We are volunteer-led, and are a non-profit with no paid staff.
Borderline personality disorder is a serious condition that does not discriminate – it can affect anyone. Up to 2% of the population live with BPD.
It can have a detrimental effect on all aspects of our lives – our relationships, friendships, education, employment and our general health.
But like with any other medical condition, with the proper treatment and ongoing care, you can recover and live a full, happy and healthy life.
It can take a long time to get from diagnosis to recovery, and sometimes it can feel like this will never end, but there is hope for the future.
We provide information through our website and email, and are here to support you in any way we can. We are not a counselling service, but can signpost you to services in your area, or provide information on diagnosis and treatment.
