This week is Borderline Personality Disorder Week. We all share the fundamental need to be treated with respect and dignity, free from stigma and discrimination. This year’s 2022 BPD Awareness Week campaign reminds us to look at the person alongside the labels, ask what their experiences are and how they continue to make sense of the world. For carers, family, friends, supporters and clinicians it’s a reminder that underneath negative or harmful coping behaviours a person can often be struggling. Let’s celebrate the person they are alongside their diagnosis, acknowledging their strengths, resilience and courage in order to SEE THE PERSON ! For more information go to way in which BPD is experienced by people is diverse. It's important we make sure each person is heard outside of stereotypes and cliches. Everyone's experience is different, valid and important. Some things might be relatable to you and some things won't. ⁠You're the expert of you. ⁠#bpdawarenessweek2022 #seethepersonbpd #strongerthanstigma #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthcarersmatter #bpdcarer #strong #strongpeoplesupporteachother #mentalhealthadvocacy #survivor #mentalhealth #livedexperience #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #borderlinepersonalitydisorderawareness #borderlinepersonalitydisorderadvocate #advocate #activist #mentalhealthadvocate #consumer #consumerconsultant #consumeradvocate #borderlinepersonalitydisorderadvisor #australianbpdfoundation #bpdawarenessweek #bpdaware #bpd #bpdrecovery #bpdawareness ...
