Thanks to the Borderline Personality Disorder Collaborative (BPD Co), we have been funded to allocate small grants of between $500 and $2000 to support promotional activities during the first week of October for BPD Awareness Week (October 1-7). 

In 2021, the Mental Health Coalition of South Australia (MHCSA) is expanding our Mental Health Week program to all of October. This will include BPD Awareness Week!

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a common and serious mental illness affecting between one and four percent of the population. BPD Awareness Week was established in 2014 as a result of consumer, carer and clinician advocacy to provide a time for acknowledgement and recognition to reduce prejudice and discrimination against people with BPD. 

BPD Awareness Week presents a powerful opportunity to demystify a complex mental health challenge and raise awareness during Mental Health Month.  Congratulations to the following grant recipients;
