    About this course:

    The Families and Carers Training and Support Programme (FACTS) is a short course designed to support the friends and families of people with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)/ Emerging Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder (EUPD). FACTS is a unique, carer-led training programme, developed with the support of the Anna Freud Centre, for the friends and families of people with BPD/EUPD.

    This booking page has only been shared with candidates who have been invited to apply to the course. Please do not forward or share the link to this booking page.

    Please email for an application form.

    For more information about FACTS please see here on our website.

    This five-week course will cover: 

    • What BPD is, and how to manage this difficult condition

    • How you can rebuild relationships and reduce conflict

    • How best to support your relative or friend with BPD

    • How to cope with your feelings of anger, grief, conflict and stress.

    FACTS works by bringing small groups of families and friends together for 5 sessions (five evening sessions, each lasting two hours, spaced out over several weeks). During the sessions participants are introduced to various skills and invited to participate in some group activities, as well as carrying out small homework tasks. FACTS is an information and training course, and is not a clinical intervention. Participants are introduced to new skills to help them cope with their family situation.
