Unfortunately I nearly missed that May is borderline-personality-disorder-awareness month. HOWEVER IT IS SO IMPORTANT. The Centre for Mental Health highlights the issues involved.

“People diagnosed with borderline personality disorder can experience deep distress, often caused by previous trauma. They also often face stigma surrounding a ‘personality disorder’ diagnosis, which can lead to further difficulties in getting the support they need and deserve. The term borderline personality disorder is not one that we like or choose, but it is one that is recognised clinically.”

Too many people with a diagnosis of borderline personality disorder don’t get the support they need.”

The Centre for Mental Health has brought together a range of information and resources to raise awareness and call for better understanding and support:
