Advocacy Brief - Borderline Personality Disorder

The NMHCCF is eager to hear from mental health consumers and carers across Australia.

Is there an issue you would like to bring to their attention? Contact them via their website.

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a mental illness that makes it difficult for people to feel safe in their relationships with other people, to have healthy thoughts and beliefs about themselves, and to control their extreme emotions and impulses. People living with a diagnosis of BPD may experience extreme distress in their work, family and social life, and may harm themselves.
