Action Plan for People Living with Borderline Personality Disorder 2017–2020 

The South Australian Mental Health Commission is developing the State’s first Action Plan for People Living with Borderline Personality Disorder 2017–2020.

A Project Steering Group was established in June 2016 to develop the Action Plan, which will be released in late 2016.

The Commission will work in partnership with the Department of Health and Ageing, Primary Health Networks, the Department for Education and Child Development, Department for Correctional Services, SAPOL, SA Ambulance Services, NGOs and advocacy groups, including consumers and carers with lived experience.

This Action Plan aims to assist people living with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and their significant others, families and carers by contributing to the provision of better access to mental health care to improve the health and wellbeing of people living with BPD.
