Technology has become a valuable resource for individuals and for families looking for help coping with borderline personality disorder.

One of the pioneers in the use of technology is Amanda Smith, a licensed Social Worker who has also been a BPD advocacy for several years. She founded the Florida BPD Association, relocated to Waco Texas to earn her degree and consults with people about BPD by phone, email and internet. Her programs include Hope for BPD – a recovery and treatment consulting service, My Dialectical Life – a daily DBT email for people with BPD and My Hopeful Life– a once-a-week email for family members and friends, and a free e-mail newsletter about BPD.
