Why personality disorder1

Why Personality Disorder?

  • Levels of Stigma

    Hear Me! Survey in 2006 indicated that stigma is particularly high for Personality Disorder:

    • Highest stigma experience – 94% (81% average)

    • 51% in mental health/other health services (24% average)

  • Lack of Information

    “I have never been given any written information at all about BPD and I think that is wrong.”

    “Why don’t more people know about it?”

Naomi Salisbury – June 2009


Why consult

Why Consult?

  • Studies indicate prevalence of 10 – 13% of the adult population in the community

    (No Longer a Diagnosis of Exclusion, NIMHE, 2003)

  • Adult population of NHS Lothian area in 2001 – 634,394

    (General Register Office for Scotland (2003) Census 2001)

  • Which means an estimated 82,471 adults in Lothian may meet the criteria to be diagnosed with a personality disorder

Why consult1

Why Consult?

“As acute illness gives way to chronic, individuals need to make sense of their experience, learn from it, ‘tell their stories’. Stories do not just describe the experience: they are repair work, creating a new self.” p68, Health, Blaxter (2004)

Naomi Salisbury – June 2009


Why consult2

Why Consult?
