Loving Someone with BPD | PowerPoint slide available for download


On January 27, 2016, Dr. Deanna Mercer and Dr. Christine Dickson of the Ottawa Hospital spoke to an engaged group of 56 people who wanted to learn more about Borderline Personality Order. They presented on top-of-mind issues, including:

  • What are the criteria for diagnosis – changes in the DSM V?
  • What are the typical route(s) to getting a diagnosis of BPD?
  • What are treatment options and expected outcomes for people diagnosed with BPD?
  • What are critical success factors and how can loved-ones help?

The presentation slide deck (with answers to those questions) is available for download

Special thanks to Dr. Mercer and Dr. Dickson for a fantastic presentation, and to the Canadian Mental Health Association, in particular Helen Gottfried–UnRuh, for generously providing the venue for this presentation. Stay tuned for more events that will support our community.
