Petition – Australian BPD Foundation

How many times have we complained that Australians diagnosed with BPD can only get 10 sessions psychotherapy covered by Medicare in a year, which is patently inadequate for them?

Here is a chance to change this by signing this petition from the Australian BPD Foundation asking for the number to be increased to 40 per year.

You can sign the petition online here

A note for Sanctuary BPD Carers, our regular October meeting is cancelled – lets catch up at the events above.
