We are a non-profit organisation (a community interest company) which is volunteer-run and led by people who are living with, or affected by, borderline personality disorder (BPD). BPD is a complex mental health condition that affects around 1-2% of people. We advocate for the use of lived experiences and peer support.
We provide free peer support groups, signposting, training and information services and our vision is that no person affected by BPD should have to face this illness alone.
We believe that people experiencing mental distress because of their BPD have the ability to direct their own journey towards wellbeing and recovery, enabling them to live a full life with improved mental wellbeing. Our vision is to create a society where every person living with BPD receives the necessary support, treatment choices, and the respect they rightfully deserve.
There are several ways we can offer support:
We offer 9 monthly online peer support groups and one face-to-face support group
We provide a signposting service, we can provide you with information on services in your local area.
Join our peer support group on Facebook to connect with others who share similar experiences
Our UK Support directory provides information on mental health services in counties and regions across the whole of the UK.
We are passionate about recovery, and firmly believe that with appropriate treatment and ongoing support recovery is possible. Within our recovery section, you will find comprehensive information on aspects of the recovery process, with valuable resources such as wellbeing information, worksheets, affirmations, yoga and meditation.
