From October 1 to October 7, campaigners from BPD Awareness Week organise events that hope to change the narratives and language on the world’s most stigmatised mental illness. This message is not only for general public, but also health professionals.

Wing Kuang spoke to Mahlie Jewell, the Lived Experience Lead at BPD Awareness Week, to get a better idea of the disorder and how to destigmatise it.
