Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a serious psychological and psychosocial disorder where people have extreme difficulties regulating their emotions. Problems include intense and volatile emotions (such as shame, anger, sadness or anxiety), chaotic relationships, impulsivity, unstable sense of self, suicide attempts, self-harm, fears of abandonment, and chronic feelings of emptiness.
With effective treatment and support, data show that most people with BPD can make great progress, with important gains even in one year across a variety of problem areas. Many will no longer meet criteria for BPD. Similarly, data show that with help, family members also report big reductions in grief and feelings of burden, as well as an increased sense of mastery and family satisfaction. Over time, 80% of BPD sufferers reduce their symptoms.
NEA.BPD was initially created as a resource and support group for the families of the BPD diagnosis. NEA.BPD has grown to be a large community of both people and information. You don’t have to travel this path alone. There is hope.

In The News

One more step! The GAP Initiative, Early Prevention, Intervention and Treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder, is pleased to announce that its position paper has been accepted under a Letter to World Psychiatry. This sets the scene for continuing global efforts to promote prevention and early intervention for people with BPD, their families and communities. Initiated under the auspices of NEABPD, then organized, energized and firmly established by Drs. Andrew Chanen and Carla Sharp (both first authors on the Letter), GAP supporters included more than 50 world leaders in the field. Stay tuned for more to come on this crucial issue.
