If Only We Had KNown: A Family Guide to Borderline Personality Disorder video series:
This series documents four families living with Borderline Personality Disorder. Each of the five videos focuses on a critical aspect of BPD: understanding what BPD is; what causes it; how it is diagnosed; how it is treated; and how people can learn to cope with BPD and rebuild fractured relationships. Leading BPD experts and advocates provide the most recent insights and explanations about Borderline Personality Disorder.

If Only We Had Known: A Family Guide to Borderline Personality Disorder was funded by grant from the National Institute of Mental Health. A randomized controlled trial conducted with family members, under the direction of NEA-BPD, showed that people who viewed the five videos increased their knowledge about BPD, felt more empowered, and felt less emotional burden.

    She doesn't think she has a problem

    Mary, a daughter

    As is typical, she doesn’t think she has a problem, so what would there be to fix? This helped, it made me realize my anger and anxiety wasn’t benefitting me in any way. While still keeping my distance, I am trying to have more patience and to be more positive in my mother’s presence I will do the best I can because we never know how much time we have left on this earth
