Randi Kreger has brought the concerns of people who have a family member with borderline personality disorder (BPD) and narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) to an international forefront through her best-selling books, informative website, and popular online family support community Welcome to Oz.
New Australian Borderline Personality Disorder Organization
I received this in my email today and am passing it along.
We are writing to inform you of the a new service for personality disorders within Australia.
Project Air Strategy is a joint venture between NSW Health and the Illawarra Health and Medical Research Institute based at the University of Wollongong that provides information to consumers [people with BPD who seek professional help], their families and health professionals regarding personality disorders.
Our website offers fact sheets for consumers, carers [family members and other caretakers] and health professionals, along with:
- Regular news updates
- Summaries of recent research
- Guidelines for treatment
- An opportunity for consumers to share their stories
We hope you will check out our website, http://ihmri.uow.edu.au/projectairstrategy/index.html or projectairstrategy.org.
The site says that, "For us, AIR symbolises life and hope, and is something light yet powerful. The gonzo on our team thinks it means "Affect Integration and Recovery." Like most organizational web sites, it is about (and directed to) lower-functional, "conventional" people with BPD who are suicidal, engage in self harm, and actively seek out professional help.
BPD is a worldwide problem. Let's hear it for another resource for people outside the USA!
