The Positives of Social Media: BBC Stories Video

Updated: Mar 1

I took part in a BBC Stories video about borderline personality disorder (BPD) and social media with my friend Kathryn.


I am so grateful for all of the supportive messages I've received since the video came out earlier this week. It makes me really happy to hear that the video has helped a number of people with BPD feel more seen and less alone.


Watch the full video here:

Here is the YouTube video featured at the beginning of the film:

Thank you Benita Barden, Bryony Hopkins and the BBC Stories team for giving me the opportunity to talk on camera. BPD remains an often misunderstood condition, so I hope the video helps more people to understand BPD.
