We are Borderline Support UK CIC, the only national non-profit dedicated to supporting and empowering individuals and families in the UK who have been affected by borderline personality disorder (sometimes also referred to as emotionally unstable personality disorder or EUPD).
BPD is a debilitating disorder, affected up to 2% of the population. It has a huge impact on people’s lives, and many people live without diagnosis or suitable treatment services.
We believe that everyone affected by BPD should receive appropriate support and treatment, at the time when they need it most, allowing them to live their lives to the fullest.
We are a service-user-led organisation, with no paid staff, and all of our trustees and volunteers have lived experience of BPD. We rely on donations and fundraising to cary out our work, and are grateful for the support of our donors, volunteers and trustees, who make our work possible.
At the heart of what we do is compassion and empathy, and empowering you towards wellness and recovery. We offer a range of services and resources, such as:
- Information: about BPD, what it is, how it is diagnosed and how it is treated
- Signposting: we can provide information on support services available in your area, from a range of providers including NHS, charities, non-profits and community organisations.
- Courses: we offer online courses in peer support and DBT, and are planning more courses in the future.
- Worksheets: we have a comprehensive range of over 80 worksheets covering topics such as anxiety, anger, communication, depression, coping techniques, CBT skills, DBT skills and more.
But we also want to see change happen, we want to see better treatment options for people with BPD across the UK. We want to advocate for you, sharing your stories and experiences with decision makers, in the hopes of getting better healthcare options for people when they need it the most.
If you want to get involved, support us, or find out more, please get in touch with us. We would love to hear from you.
Together, we can make a difference for people affected by borderline personality disorder.
