Say "NO" to "Non" and Anti BPD Websites (Borderline Personality Disorder)



Did you know that May is Borderline Personality Disorder Awareness month?  While it's BPD month all year round here at Healing From BPD, it's important that we join this worldwide movement to bring awareness to this condition and help reduce stigma.

There are somethings we may be doing that are counterproductive to this goal, and they are easily fixable.  Check out this quick video about avoiding websites about "Nons" and other anti BPD content -- not only to help the cause but also for your own personal self-care and emotional well-being.

See this video for more information.




Thanks for reading and watching.
More Soon.

  1. Oh goodness, this video definitely hit home for me!

    When I was a senior in college, I actually wrote my undergraduate thesis about online communities for self-proclaimed "nons." In retrospect, it probably was not the healthiest decision for me to spend a year reading, coding, and analyzing the text in those sites! However, it led me to see that those who love and support people with BPD actually do share common experiences and gain benefit from this social support.

    You absolutely are correct that the term "non" is problematic and that it probably is not a good idea for someone with a BPD diagnosis to read these sites, let alone study them like I did. However, just like the online community of people with BPD, these groups do serve a productive purpose for many of their members.
