A Crisis of Epidemic Proportions: Youth Suicide and Self-injury

Congressman John Katko (NY 24th District), Co Chair of the Suicide Prevention Task Force joins NEABPD and BTech on November 8th, 2017 at their Congressional Briefing on Suicide and Self Injury.

National Education Alliance for Borderline Personality Disorder (NEABPD) and Behavioral Tech were proud to host Youth Suicide and Self Injury Briefing in coordination with Congressman Grace Napolitano, Chair of the Congressional Mental Health Caucus, Congressmen John Katko and Don Beyer, Co Chairs of the Suicide Talk Force and Congressman Eliot Engel.

Speakers included the Congressional leaders, world renowned suicide and self injury experts Dr. Alan Fruzzetti & Dr. Blaise Aguirre, CEO of Btech Preston Thompson, two mothers Lynn Courey & Stacey Ahner, young adult Krissy Ahner & Dr. Perry Hoffman, President and Co-founder of NEABPD.

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.
