Join us on-line for April’s Sanctuary meeting.  That way, we comply with COVID 19 restrictions.

Our speaker will be Dr Martha Kent, who has been our patron, and has been one of the people who fought long and hard, advocating to get better treatment for people diagnosed with BPD. She was also one of a group of people who advocated for a BPD Specialist service, which culminated in BPD Co. She was indeed the first Clinical lead at BPD Co.

Martha has now retired and this will be her farewell meeting for us.

Martha has been passionate about BPD, which she called the “Cinderella of all mental illnesses” in some of her speeches as it got even less help from the system than other mental illnesses.

We have asked her to speak about BPD in general, what it means for the people we care for and what it means for us. She recognises that caring for someone with BPD can be wearing and she was one of the first people who said that we may be suffering from PTSD or secondary trauma.

Do not miss out hearing what she has to say.

This meeting will be on line, next Tuesday 13th April, from 5pm to 7pm (South Australian time)
