BPD Awareness Week 2020


BPD Awareness Week ran from October 1st to 7th 2020 in Australia

The theme was Flipping the Script – Changing the narrative about Borderline Personality Disorder

Lets change the way we think and talk about borderline personality disorder.

We encourage people living with BPD to be mindful of the way they think about themselves, allow others to see their challenges, move towards strengths-based self-talk and to celebrate their strengths.

We also challenge families, supporters and people working with those living with BPD to change the way they speak and write about people living with BPD, to encourage and promote the individual’s strengths, reframe their challenges into strengths-based language, educate themselves by accessing new research, and amplify the voice of lived experience.
