Personality disorders affect an estimated 10-13% of the population. They often attract stigma rather than support, and they can be distressing to live with. There are gaps in understanding within health care systems of personality disorders and what interventions and options are provided by the NHS.
Now a group of people who have mental health and social difficulties commonly associated with the diagnosis of 'personality disorder’ have launched a campaign to raise awareness of the conditions. Supported by Healthy London Partnership, it centres on a series of podcasts, to increase understanding and give people hope regarding support and treatment options.
