Welcome to CALIA

We are dedicated to supporting anyone in the UK (and their friends, family and carers) who is affected by Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), sometimes also called Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder (EUPD).

CALIA is also:

  • passionate in encouraging a positive discussion around Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)
  • campaigning to reduce the stigma and discrimination attached to the diagnosis
  • promoting the availability and accessibility of appropriate services for anyone affected by Borderline Personality Disorder
  • providing information and links to useful websites and services
  • signposting to support services for anyone affected by Borderline Personality Disorder
  • providing information on employment, wellbeing, and legal rights during mental health detention.

We are here because Borderline Personality Disorder is a serious condition, and there needs to be more support and treatment options for those living with BPD.

Our aim is to support patients, raise awareness of Borderline Personality Disorder, and reduce stigma and discrimination. We hope to offer helpline services in the near future, and will be offering training courses to employers, managers and HR staff.

About Borderline Personality Disorder

If you would like to know more BPD, what it is, what the symptoms are, how it is diagnosed, or what treatments and medications are available, visit our ‘About BPD‘ pages.

Information for Friends, Family and Carers

It can be difficult seeing a loved one suffer with the symptoms of BPD, or having to care for them. It’s important for you to take care of your own health and wellbeing, and be informed about the condition and what it means for your loved one. Find out more here.

NHS Funding Petition

We want to drive change, and we want to see an increase in NHS funding for BPD treatment. Mental health services across the UK need more funding to improve services offered to patients diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. Find out more about our petition to the NHS here, or sign and share the petition.

Anti-Stigma Campaign

We want to see an end to BPD stigma and discrimination. Stigma and discrimination can ruin lives, stop people seeking help, and cause damage to health and wellbeing. Join our campaign to raise awareness, and help end stigma and discrimination against those living with BPD.
