[Special Guest] Stephanie from Sane Australia on Life with Borderline Personality Disorder

On Thursday the 27th of July at 8:00pm we’re going to talk about living with Borderline Personality Disorder with Stephanie; a forum member from Sane Australia.

 

Stephanie was diagnosed with Borderline Personality disorder when she was 23 years old and is here to talk to us about how she has learned to not just survive, but live an amazing life.

 

Here's some things we'll talk about: 

  • How to help peers/family other people who aren't living with a personality disorder understand what it's like and how they can best offer support
  • Distress and big emotions - skills for getting through it okay and what you can practice over time to work at managing and expressing big feelings
  • The recovery journey and how to keep going when sometimes it can feel pretty tough
  • The services and professional supports that are out there to help

You can ask Stephanie an anonymous question right now by filling out this form. Or come and chat to her live in this thread on Thursday the 27th of July at 8:00 pm AEST.
