    Aims of this training

    We know it can sometimes be difficult to live with, or care for, someone who has  Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD/EUPD). Families and friends can struggle to cope with their own feelings, leaving them traumatised, disempowered and unsure how best to help their loved one. Support and advice is rarely available and when it is, is often confusing and unhelpful. The purpose of FACTS is to improve family wellbeing and offer advice and support to families. 

    Who is this training for?

    If you have received the link to this booking page you should have already been invited to apply to the course. Please do not forward or share the link to this booking page.

    Criteria for participation in the course include being a family member or friend of a person with BPD/EUPD, and being able to attend the 5 evening sessions. The individual with BPD/EUPD does not need to be receiving specialist support from BPD services for their carers to be able to participate.
