In honor of World Mental Health day, We want to introduce you to a fantastic book is an incredible resource for the friends and family of those with Borderline Personality Disorder.
But first, let us explain what BPD is: "Borderline personality disorder is a mental health condition that impacts the way you think and feel about yourself and others, causing problems functioning in everyday life. It includes a pattern of unstable and intense relationships, distorted self-image, extreme emotions, and impulsiveness" (Mayo Clinic 2015). BPD is also often paired with an extreme fear of abandonment that results in impulsive actions that can lead to pushing others away.
We believe that the better we understand disorders like BPD, the better we can take care of both ourselves and our loved ones that live with it. This book shares personal experiences with BPD and teachers the reader to make sense of it all, stand up for themselves, and defuse conflicts in a healthy and effective way.
If you or someone you know lives with BPD, or if you simply want to know more about it, this could be a great resource for you. We encourage everyone to check it out and order a copy for yourself here!
