Different health professionals may describe you as having either BPD or EUPD, although these are the same diagnosis.
The programme helps you build your confidence and self-esteem, enhancing a sense of personal responsibility in your recovery journey. The aim of sessions is to improve your daily life and empower you to achieve positive change. Through a structured and supportive programme you will learn about yourself, share your experiences and listen to other people in the group talk about their recovery, providing support for one another to find solutions to the challenges that you may face.
The groups offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. You are supported by Members of staff, Lived Experience Volunteers who have completed the programme themselves and activity assistants.
The programme has been developed on Andresen’s model of recovery, alongside DBT skills and incorporating the 3 interconnected elements of the Biopsychosocial model. It is carefully curated to be recovery focused, offering a diverse range of learning and social opportunities, whilst challenging the core traits of BPD/EUPD.
