Today marks the first day of borderline personality disorder (BPD) Awareness week.  The theme for this year is “Flipping the Script: Changing the Narrative of BPD”. BPD is an often misunderstood condition, that results in stigma and discrimination. It is reported that about 75% of people with BPD will make at least one suicide attempt in their life and 10% die as a result of suicide.   

Flipping the Script aims to educate by sharing stories of lived experience, providing information and demonstrating that treatment and recovery are possible. Please check out their website: https://www.bpdawareness.com.au/about-bpd/.  For more information, resources and a list of online events during the week, check out the Australian BPD Foundation:  https://www.bpdfoundation.org.au/
