Borderline Personality Disorder Awareness Week

Rochelle Public Seen by 103

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/
