writing & media
I've written a book for people with BPD, or those who identify with this diagnosis. The book combines practical advice and DBT-based coping techniques, alongside my personal experience.
I wrote it because I know how hard it can be to live with such a stigmatised mental health condition. My book contains advice on topics such as dealing with stigma, long waiting lists and intense emotions. It's published by Jessica Kingsley and out 21.10.21.
