UPDATE APRIL 2020

As we all, individually and as a society come to terms with the implications that the COVID-19 pandemic has on our lives and our workplaces we need to postpone the BPD Core Competency and Train the Trainers workshops for now.

The Australian BPD Foundation and Spectrum are both committed to delivering all of our scheduled 2020 training workshops as soon as it is safe to do so. We will provide significant notice of the new workshop dates once it is safe to do so.

We are holding our EOI open (until we have reached a maximum of 200 EOIs for each workshop) with the dates for the workshops still to be confirmed. At this stage we anticipate that the workshops in Perth and Bunbury will proceed as scheduled. We will endeavour to reschedule all affected workshops as soon as possible and provide regular updates to those registered. You can register your EOI using the link below.

Developed in partnership between Australian BPD Foundation and Spectrum Personality Disorder Service. This project was undertaken with funding from the National Mental Health Commission.

Sophie: 3 things I know about BPD
In this new video from The Drum's '3 Things I Know About...' series, Sophie provides insights into how BPD affects her personally, and shares some things she has learnt - it helps to understand yourself, it's OK to seek help and it helps to talk about it. Sophie finds self-care becomes easier with a routine as it develops muscle memory, and also believes the more she talks about it the less the stigma there will be, which may make it easier for others.

Good news for Victorians

This isn’t just available for Victorian’s. I’m in sa and was told by a therapist that I can use it.

This should be the bare minimum every year for all Australians! Less than 1 session per month isn't acceptable by any stretch of the imagination

While that is a great start it still shows that they have no concept of mental health issues by assuming that it is only people that are in lockdown that are having extra issues right now. Also anyone with BPD having a session every 6 weeks (10 sessions on better access spread out evenly over a calendar year) is not sufficient for them to stay on track. I don't think that there are too many other issues where that would be sufficient either.

I emailed the Health Minister about 18 months ago to argue this and got an outright no. This is BS.
