Raising Awareness Around Personality Disorder & Recovery

“People who have a personality disorder, may find that their beliefs and attitudes are different from others. Their patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving are more difficult to change and they will have a more limited range of emotions, attitudes and behaviours with which to cope with everyday life. This can make things difficult for them or for other people.” (Mind)

This course will help you to understand personality disorder better and provide you with practical advice to help manage the condition and feel more equipped to support yourself and others to achieve greater emotional wellbeing.
