Troubling Borderline Personality Disorder

Below is some of my activism deconstructing the label of BPD in the hope that we can find new ways of speaking about acute and chronic distress which champion the beliefs of the person in pain - not character assassinating ideas that need to be left in the nineteenth century where they originated. Help is available and things can change, even after decades of chronic suicidality. Access to this care just can't be contingent on a label that so often causes more damage than good, consolidating our worse fears about the self. 

More of my writings, activisms and interviews on this area are available on my academic.edu site. However, I would like to stress that the most original, compelling and important activism is done by survivors. Check out #TraumaNotPD on Twitter for the latest survivor activism.

We are making progress slowly. Stay safe please. Things do change - Jay x
