Borderline Personality Disorder: Exploring the Lived Experiences of ACT Women and Service Providers 

This study (conducted by Women's centre for Health Matters in the ACT) investigated the experiences of women with lived experiences of being diagnosed or labelled with BPD in the ACT and the experiences of service providers who helped and supported them. The findings of this report highlight several areas of future work that we hope will assist in helping the ACT Government, health service providers and the range of other services who provide support to women who have been diagnosed or labelled with BPD in the ACT to improve their experiences and health outcomes.
