The Mental Health Network was pleased to host this webinar and Q&A session highlighting the lived experience of individuals with a diagnosis of a personality disorder.

The session addressed the following questions:

How are these issues exacerbated by other health disproportionalities – e.g. age, race, sexuality and gender?
