Why Sponsor

The Annual National BPD Preconference and Conference runs over 2 days and is an important specialist event which reliably attracts strong interest from across the country.

As a national event, with a stellar lineup of presentations and activities, delegates are likely to include key decision makers, mental health professionals, educators, people with a diagnosis of BPD, their carers and family members who want to be part of this national conversation.

Delegates attend for professional development, collaboration, networking, exchange of ideas and also have an important opportunity to learn from those who lives have been impacted by BPD and from mental health professionals with specialist knowledge of BPD.
