Join us to celebrate Borderline Personality Disorder Awareness Week. Professor Bateman from University College, London, and University of Copenhagen, Denmark.
An evening for people with lived experience of BPD, their carers and those clinicians and others working with them towards recovery. Joanne Veltkamp, the senior clinician for consumer and carer services at Spectrum Personality Disorder Services, will facilitate a discussion on which treatments can work from her perspective and your experiences.
The BPD support group is for families and carers of people diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) or traits of BPD. These groups provide an opportunity for family members and carers to connect with those with similar experiences, gain strength, build resilience and hope, and receive support from each other and learn new ways of coping through each other’s experience. You can expect to be treated with care, consideration and dignity in an environment which is safe, private and comfortable. The group is not a therapy group although it may be therapeutic.
