At our June Sanctuary meeting, we were lucky to hear from Dr Chris Wurm about BPD and Substance Use.

Here are the notes we took during his talk.  Please note that they our notes, ie our interpretation of what was said: Notes about Chris Wurm’s talk

If you’d like more information about BPD and Substance Use, here is an excellent webinar by Adina Hauser: Mental Health and Substance Use in Youth.
(Adina offers guidance on skills and strategies that may be helpful to family members when their loved ones turn to substances to cope. This webinar comes from the Sashbear Foundation.)
