Personality Disorder Project

Experiences of Borderline Personality Disorder Diagnosis – we want to hear your views!

The Much More Than a Label project is developing a booklet to raise awareness about Borderline Personality Disorder diagnosis based on lived experience.

We want to reflect the many different views and experiences there are. Some find it helpful and some reject the diagnosis. If you have this diagnosis, are in the process of being diagnosed, or have experiences that may attract this diagnosis, we want to hear what you think.

Please fill in our anonymous questionnaire  BPD diagnosis questionnaire  by 31 December 2018.

Paper copies available on request. Please share this survey link and poster with anyone you know who may be interested. BPD diagnosis survey poster


About the Personality Disorder project

Have you:

Been given a diagnosis of a personality disorder?

Had experiences that you feel fit with a personality disorder diagnosis?

Do you want to:

Have your say about the information and support you’ve received?

Try to make changes in the way you are treated or the services provided?


What does the Project do?

The aim of the project is for people who have been given a diagnosis of a personality disorder or had experiences that they feel fit with a personality disorder diagnosis to come together, have a collective voice and create change.

The group decides what it wants to do (it is experience-led) and has a CAPS staff member to enable/facilitate its decisions

For example, the group could:

  • Collect views of people who identify with the experiences of a personality disorder diagnosis
  • Use people’s views and experiences to create resources and training
  • Explore different ways to get information about people’s experiences across
