Share Your Experience

Would you like to share your experience of living with borderline personality disorder?

Why should I share my experience?

By discussing your personal experiences, you can help us tell stories that highlight the issues of life with BPD. These stories help us raise awareness of the needs of people with BPD, and ensures that they remain a priority issue in healthcare. We can also use these stories in our campaigning, to show the real need for change in the healthcare system.

Sharing your story can be a really positive and uplifting experience, and it can be an opportunity to reassure others that they are not alone in their suffering.

Who should share their experience?

If you are currently living with BPD, providing care for someone with BPD, or have a loved one who has been diagnosed with BPD, we’d love to hear from you. We welcome you to share your experience of diagnosis, the symptoms you have encountered, the treatments you have undergone, your encounters within the healthcare system, or any other aspect you wish to share with us.

Sharing your personal experiences can have a profound impact on others.

By opening up and sharing your stories, you have the ability to start conversations, alter perspectives, combat stigma and discrimination, and ultimately help us to provide support to as many people as possible. The act of sharing stories holds immense power in inspiring others to seek help and support.

Can I share anonymously?

You can share your experience in complete anonymity, we will only ever disclose the information that you are comfortable with sharing, and will ensure that no personally identifying details, such as names or locations, are included.

How will we share your story?

From time to time we may use stories, or parts of stories:

  • on this website
  • in fundraising
  • in awareness campaigns
  • on social media

We would never consider using any part of your story without asking you first.
