About this Event

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a complex mental illness that is often misunderstood. BPD is characterised by unstable and varying moods, emotions and self-image. It often leads to volatile relationships and self-harm which can include suicide or suicidal ideation.

With early diagnosis, appropriate treatment and support the prognosis for people with BPD is good. Having BPD is not a choice; it is a legitimate mental health issue. There are treatments available and people are likely to recover.

Join MC, Professor Sharon Lawn, along with our team of experts to bust the stigma that is often attached to this debilitating and recoverable mental illness.
