BPD Awareness Week 2019
BPD Awareness Week runs from October 1st to 7th 2019.
This year’s theme for BPD Awareness Week is Best Practice Deserved.
We know there are exceptional, researched and evidence-based practice guidelines for the management of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) in Australia. The ‘Best Practice Deserved’ campaign acknowledges this, and uses a strength-based approach to embed these guidelines and other evidence-based practices into the treatment structures of services working with people living with BPD. We believe that best practice care changes the narrative around Borderline Personality Disorder and highlights the high rate of recovery from this complex mental health issue.
We truly believe that education leads to understanding. With understanding, comes compassion, and compassion leads to empathy. We believe once people truly know the facts about BPD and see the complex human beings behind it that this will decrease stigma and end discrimination
