I was delighted to be a guest on Kimberley Wilson's awesome Stronger Minds podcast talking about my experiences of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD).
In the episode, I talk about how I got my diagnosis of BPD, my interactions with mental health services, what I've found damaging and what is helpful.
Kimberley Wilson is a chartered psychologist, NHS mental health trust governor and also a Great British Bake Off finalist. It was an absolute joy to be on her podcast as each episode is always thoroughly-researched, reflective and thought-provoking.
I would like to say a huge thank you to Kimberley for having me. I really admire the work she is doing to further understandings of not only BPD, but a multitude of mental health topics.
The previous episode in the series provides an explanation of what Borderline Personality Disorder is and is well-worth a listen if you want to learn more about BPD both generally and clinically, as well as its context within psychiatry as a whole. You can listen to it here: https://aca.st/be131d
