BPD Resources

Books, videos, and other resources about BPD

Unfortunately, there is a lot of information on the Internet about borderline personality disorder that is inaccurate or misleading. FBPDA would like to give individuals with BPD, their loved ones, and mental health professionals current and appropriate information about this complex and severe mental illness.

Below we’ve listed organizations and resources that can be trusted to deliver current knowledge and research that can be trusted.

As always, we look forward to hearing from you. Do you have a comment or a question about borderline personality disorder?  Contact us.
