This report examined the experiences of carers and people we care for with a diagnosis of BPD, and their perspectives on emergency care when a crisis arises.

It was an Honours project supported by the Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Research Group, and undertaken in consultation with the Sanctuary BPD Carers Support Group, SA.

Kristy Acres is now engaged in a full-time PhD supported by SA Health’s BPD Collaborative.
