Borderline Personality Disorder Awareness Week
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.
