Perth, WA           18 October 2017

A first for Western Australia

The National Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) conference draws on a strong history of successful national events around Australia, and October 2017 marks the inaugural Western Australian event.

We expect to attract delegates from every corner of Australia to this landmark event, and represent a significant step forward for the advancement of knowledge, awareness and services for this complex mental illness.

The 2017 conference is being organised as a partnership between the Australian BPD Foundation and the WA Association for Mental Health.

The conference provides an opportunity for clinicians, practitioners, consumers and carers/family members from across Australia to come together to collaborate, share information and educate the wider community.
