Discover the latest news and events happening in mental health.
Mental Health Carers ARAFMI NSW Inc. in collaboration with the Mental Health Association invite you to the Third National Borderline Personality Disorder Awareness Day Conference to celebrate some good news in mental health.
The theme for the econference is Celebrating Recovery, and it will be held on the 3rd - 4th October, 2013, at the University of Technology, Sydney.
For years, Borderline Personality Disorder ('BPD') was a diagnosis which excluded people from mental health services. However, years of research and practise has shown that with the right therapy and support, people can overcome their BPD. This reduces the burden on mental health services in the best possible way; by achieving recovery!
