We took this opportunity to share a video from the NEA.BPD:
US Congressional Briefing on Borderline Personality Disorder 2007.

There are several speakers:

  • Perry Hoffman PHD, opening
  • 5:45 Tami, a young woman recently diagnosed with BPD
  • 15:50 Stacey, a mother about how her daughter’s behaviour started showing at an early age, and the mis-diagnoses made till they finally diagnosed BPD.
  • 26:45 Robert Friedel MD, clinical professor of psychiatry, author of BPD Demystified, on early diagnosis
