I was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD) at the age of 19.
It’s a condition which causes me to experience a range of emotions, including severe mood swings, anger and paranoia.
Sadly, I feel that it’s an illness which is widely misunderstood by many who often aren’t aware of how debilitating it can be.
Therefore, my team and I are working with Fixers to shed some light on BPD - a serious mental health condition that affects people in different ways.
I hope our campaign will stamp out the stigma around BPD and show others like myself that they don’t need to be ashamed and hide away.
Here is a list of Fixers helping me with my Fix:
