This conference focuses on Improving Access, Treatment and Support for People living with a diagnosis of Personality Disorder.

“People with the diagnosis of personality disorder are amongst those most neglected by public services. They are routinely failed by the system – and yet the cost of this neglect is vast… Time for action is long overdue.”


“A personality disorder can affect how you cope with life, manage relationships, how you behave, and how you feel - pretty much every aspect of your life. The picture for personality disorders is complex, but we often hear that care is patchy, and people only get help when they hit a crisis. There needs to be a package of support that is tailored to the individual, as we know that kind of care works and for some can mean the difference between life and death.”

Rethink Mental Illness

“Effective personality disorder services demand genuine co-production, relational practice and organisations which truly support staff in meeting the challenges of their work.”
