Experiences of Personality Disorder

‘Much More Than A Label’

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?

Get in touch and get involved!

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

Education as Advocacy

The Much More Than A Label group has run workshops for students at Queen Margaret University and Edinburgh University, some to occupational therapy students and some to psychology students.

BPD Voices book

The group recently produced a book called BPD Voices. The book shares the voices of people with experience of Borderline Personality Disorder.
