Community services for people living with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)

So I just found out about some programs in the community for those living with BPD. Includes carers groups, creative spaces, self-help, games and information.

A colleague here at Health, Counselling and Disability Services alerted me (and others) to a range of programs in the community for people living with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD).

They are being provided by The BPD Collaborative (BPD Co), a state-wide service developed in response to the demonstrated need for enhanced, evidence-based BPD service development in South Australia.

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a mental health disorder that affects a person’s ability to regulate their emotions and behavior, causing difficulty in forming and maintaining stable relationships. People with BPD may experience intense emotions, have impulsive behaviors, and have a distorted sense of self-image. They may also struggle with self-harm and suicidal thoughts or behaviors.

Here is the communication they sent out…

We’re very excited to share with you new group and information sessions. Please see below and attached flyers for more information and to register.

These are trial groups/programs which will have future dates set, if community interest is there.
