Personality Disorder Project
The aim of the project is for people who have been given a diagnosis of a personality disorder or had experiences that they feel fit with a personality disorder diagnosis to come together, have a collective voice and create change.
The group decides what it wants to do (it is experience-led) and has a CAPS staff member to enable/facilitate its decisions.
For example, the group could:
- collect views of people who identify with the experiences of a personality disorder diagnosis
- use people’s views and experiences to create resources and training
- explore different ways to get information about people’s experiences across
