Awareness Workshops

Free Awareness Workshop for Service Users, Families and Carers

We run about 4 awareness workshops on Borderline Personality Disorder across the year. The workshops are for anyone who has, or can relate to this diagnosis and are currently receiving services from Community Mental Health Teams in Somerset. The workshops are also open to the person’s family members, friends, or carers.  

These workshops cover:

  • The diagnosis and what Borderline Personality Disorder is
  • What it means to live with Borderline Personality Disorder or care for someone who experiences these symptoms
  • Accepting the diagnosis and its positive benefits
  • How Borderline Personality Disorder affects relationships
  • Treatment options available in Somerset and how to access them

This is covered in a one day workshop across various locations in Somerset.  Remaining workshops for 2015 and those planned for 2016:
