What we do

Borderline personality disorder is a debilitating and complex illness, and is one of the biggest mental health challenges this country has faced. The facts:

  • Less than 2% of the population have been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder.
  • People with BPD are more likely to commit (or attempt to commit) suicide than individuals with any other psychiatric disorder.
  • It can take years to get a correct diagnosis of borderline personality disorder.
  • Borderline personality disorder has a huge impact on families, friends and relationships.
  • Many people living with bpd receive no treatment or support for the condition.
  • People living with borderline personality disorder need specialist services.

CALIA is a non-profit in the UK dedicated to supporting bpd patients and their families. We are a small organisation with big ambitions. Our goal is to provide:

  • information and resources on borderline personality disorder symptoms, causes and diagnosis;
  • links to general mental health support services across the country;
  • training on borderline personality disorder, available to employers, medical professionals and the general public;
  • a network of bpd-specific peer support groups across the UK, led by trained volunteers;
  • one-to-one support provided via email and telephone.
