Mental Health Advocate

Hi Guys,

I came across scope after receiving an email inviting me to write a blog post for their site, so here i am. Though the post isn't yet finished, i thought i would speak up here as I post a lot of mental health related content on both my twitter account aborderlinedad and also on my blog. My aim is to try and help other people in similar situations to myself, as well as helping to stamp out the stigma associated with mental health. I speak very openly about my mental health struggles and i do not sugar coat anything. As such, some of my content may come with a trigger warning.

I am currently diagnosed with BPD, cPTSD, Bipolar and EDNOS (an eating disorder). I have a new psychiatrist who seems to be really good (only seen once) and I've been referred for EMDR and DBT therapy.

    Hi @aborderlinedad

    Thank you for your post. It is always great for others to know how to connect with others with similar experiences. It is one of the things which motivated me to become a volunteer for Scope's online forum. Thanks for all you do for others with mental health struggles, I think it is wonderful. What do our community members think? I would be interested in hearing all your thoughts  :)
