Emerging New Mental Health Organisation Enters Next Phase Of Growth

Nationally operating non-profit Borderline Support UK has appointed two new trustees to work alongside chief executive Tess Linton

Borderline Support UK is the only national non-profit dedicated to supporting and empowering
individuals and families in the UK who have been affected by borderline personality disorder (BPD),
also referred to as emotionally unstable personality disorder (EUPD.)

This July Borderline Support UK is appointing two new trustees to support its development:

Katharine Lane is a teacher in Hertfordshire with a background in finance and charity administration. She has always had a passion for neurodiversity and mental health and brings her
own lived experiences, having been diagnosed with EUPD. In her spare time she enjoys creative
pursuits including dance. Katharine is dedicated to helping others living with BPD/EUPD to thrive
and is developing her knowledge of how movement can have positive outcomes for wellbeing.

Victoria Nunn is a marketing, engagement and communications officer in Tyne and Wear.
Following a degree in sociology & social policy and masters in both media culture and education, she has spent the past decade working in the VCSE sector, including roles with several mental health focused organisations. She has also spent time working in the media industry in film production and business development, developing a particular interest in community arts and education. Victoria was diagnosed with BPD in 2013 and hopes her communications background will be an asset for growing Borderline Support UK.

Chief executive Tess Linton has this to say about the new appointments and what it means for the
future of Borderline Support UK:

We are thrilled to welcome on board Victoria and Katharine, at a time when the organisation is
embarking on an ambitious new three-year strategy. Their wealth of professional and lived
experience, talent and fresh perspectives will help us in developing and sustaining new support services. They will undoubtably be an asset to the organisation and will play a critical role in ensuring we deliver on our mission to ensure that everyone living with BPD gets the support, treatment options and respect that they deserve.
