What We Do and How We Do It
We provide online peer support
We provide free online peer support through our monthly online groups, which include groups for men, women and families/friends/carers.
We also provide support through our closed Facebook support group.
We Provide Information
We offer a wide range of information on BPD, covering everything from diagnosis to medication and more. This website, as well as our email and social media channels, serve as valuable resources for obtaining comprehensive knowledge on this condition.
We offer Signposting
We can signpost you to services in your local area. These services encompass not only BPD support services and mental health organisations, but also support groups, activity groups, financial advice and more. You can also use our support directory to find services local to you.
We Provide Training and Education
We provide comprehensive online training in a range of topics including peer support at no cost, allowing individuals with personal experience in mental health to assist those in need.
We also offer training in the fundamentals of DBT, which is widely acknowledged as the most effective treatment for BPD. This training is available as eLearning or in a virtual classroom.
Our borderline personality disorder awareness course offers valuable insights into a condition that is frequently misrepresented, misunderstood and misdiagnosed. By taking this course, you will acquire knowledge and develop an awareness of borderline personality disorder, including its diagnosis, symptoms, and treatment approaches.
We Campaign for Change
We want to see a change in the way we talk about borderline personality disorder, and a change in the way people with BPD are treated. People living with symptoms of BPD should be treated with respect and dignity, and provided the healthcare they need without stigma or discrimination.
Our goal is to establish standardized treatment options accessible to all those in need.
We Strive to Raise Awareness
We want to encourage conversations about BPD, to make it more widely known and therefore reduce associated stigma and discrimination.
