Call to Action for BPD!

The National Educational Alliance for Borderline Personality Disorder (NEABPD) is asking everyone to call our local representatives to let them know that BPD is a serious mental illness that needs more federal government dollars that give people access to treatment, support, and resources. Please read the e-mail below and click on the link to make the call. It really will make a difference! Dear NEABPD Friends,   We are asking you to join an important and timely advocacy initiative before the end of May, BPD Awareness Month.  Please call your local House Representative asking them to sign on to a letter written by their colleague, Representative Barbara Comstock from Virginia recognizing BPD as a serious mental illness.   This recognition will offer new opportunities for support and significant funding for the BPD community. We have less than 14 days to get Members of the House to sign on…   Please see the letter below and go to http://emotionsmatterbpd.org/ for complete instructions on how to contact your local Representative and advocate for BPD.   Thank you in advance for your time and effort!...
