People don’t always need advice.

Sometimes all they really need is

a hand to hold,

an ear to listen

and a heart to understand them.

Sanctuary is a support group for anyone who cares for a family member or friend who has been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, or BPD.

Sanctuary is a safe haven, where carers are welcomed and receive support to cope with this serious illness, which often causes much trauma for both carers and those diagnosed with BPD.

It is a place to talk about the impact of this illness, to learn coping skills from other carers, as well as professionals, and to learn about  the illness and its treatment.

It is a Sanctuary in name and nature, where carers will no longer feel so isolated and alone.
