Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is one of the most serious and common mental illnesses that can have a profound impact on not only those diagnosed with it, but also the lives of partners and carers who provide daily support.

For the past three years, Mental Health Carers ARAFMI Hunter, has been conducting vital support programs in Newcastle for families members and carers of people living with the disorder.

Now, thanks to a $35,000 grant from nib foundation, this program is set to expand into Muswellbrook and other areas across the Hunter New England Region to meet the growing demand for the support services.
