For the first time, the week of the 1-7 October marks Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) Awareness Week.
Organised by a number of BPD organisations in collaboration, the week aims to raise awareness of the need for access to evidence-based treatment, expanding early diagnosis, and family education to promote resiliency and positive recovery for BPD.
The organisers are asking the community to:
- Learn about BPD and watch personal story videos
- Share messages of hope and recovery
- Comment on the National Road Map Strategy for Borderline Personality Disorder
- Upload an 'expression of emotion' through art to their Instagram page
- Attend an awareness event
- Email the Health Minister and Mental Health Commissioner asking them to take action to support people living with BPD
The campaign website contains information on how to take part in all these activities:
