Concerns have been raised in the online mental health community about the news that Instagram has recently placed a warning message that appears when people search the site using the hashtag #BPD.
There were many people on Twitter this week who expressed feelings of loneliness. They felt that friends, family members or people on Twitter had forgotten about them. And, quite understandably, that was very painful.
It just might be that the most misunderstood and stigmatized of all mental health conditions is Borderline Personality Disorder. Which is amazing when you consider how many people meet the BPD diagnosis.
With Valentine’s Day upon us, the founder of the BPD advocacy group EmotionsMatter.org writes about the critical role meaningful interpersonal relationships play in the recovery process.
#BPDchat is lively, fast moving and always highly appreciated by that day’s participants. It’s a no-cost, informative and effective and way to help people with BPD get a better handle on their disorder, especially if they can’t access or afford formal BPD treatment services in their area.
Today will see this year’s last edition of the Twitter-based community #BPDChat , a real time interactive site designed for people who are living and struggling with Borderline Personality Disorder.
