Our Mission

NEPDA's mission is to promote education, support and advocacy in the field of personality disorders, with a concentration on Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). NEPDA sponsors workshops, conferences and small-group meetings for family members, friends and other loved ones, consumers of mental health services, professionals and the community at large in order to improve awareness of personality disorders and reduce the stigma which is often associated with them. NEPDA partners with other groups and organizations, including McLean Hospital in Belmont, Massachusetts, in disseminating educational materials and providing basic information and personal support to those who may be confronting one or more of these disorders for the first time. Consisting entirely of volunteers, NEPDA is a 501(c)(3) entity which relies on membership dues and tax-deductible contributions.
