  • What Is BPD Humans Support Group About?
    BPD Humans is a monthly virtual meet up of people experiencing Borderline Personality Disorder, guided by a mental health professional. People here share what happened throughout the month, coping mechanisms and hold space for each other.
  • What is your founding story?
    Milana and Maheema were diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder in 2018 and 2019 respectively. We were unable to find an eco system of people who suffered with this disorder and were left in misery. The stigma surrounding mental health and the lack of awareness, both by general population and mental health professionals did not help our growth which eventually led us to form Borderline Personality Disorder Humans. We started out as an Instagram page, sharing our day to day life and soon brought on board a mental health professional and started conducting monthly support group sessions. Every member after registering is added to an online chat room where all further information is shared. We strive to form a safe space for every individual experiencing Borderline Personality Disorder and find an equal healing opportunity irrespective of any social constructs.
  • Who are the facilitators behind BPD Humans Support Group ?
    Milana and Maheema bring the group together and carry out the logistics of the session, while Nyana Sabharwal guides the discussions as a professional.

    Notes: The above information may change from time to time, and is shared with you to understand the background of where the support group comes from.
  • Who is your support group for?
    People with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). A confirmed diagnosis by a mental health professional is compulsory before signing up.
  • Explain your group's approach towards helping a person's mental health care.
    It’s a peer to peer support group for people with Borderline Personality Disorder where they can share their stories and support each other. The idea is to make it a less isolating journey for everyone with this shared diagnosis. And to also dispel myths and theories about Borderline Personality Disorder and generate awareness and acceptance.
  • What is your group's approach towards professional mental health care interventions?
    We have a mental health professional on board, who helps us find contacts of professionals when a member needs support.
  • What conversations is your support group not equipped to support?
    Our support group is not meant to serve as a replacement for therapy sessions.
  • How does one sign up? What’s the coordination process like?
    They reach out to us on Instagram or over email and then we give a form to fill up, confirming their diagnosis by a mental health professional and by formally stating their acceptance to all the terms and conditions of the group. And then they’re added to the community.
  • Walk us through the average format of your group session.
    It’s a free flowing session where people are free to discuss whatever is on their minds. It ends with a soothing exercise to ensure everyone is feeling okay. It is an iterative process where feedback is taken into account.
  • What are your home rules/values?
    Empathy, accountability, kindness, feedback, authenticity, support and growth of every member.
  • What do you hope for participants in your group to take back with them after a session?
    To feel understood, to be heard and to learn potential coping mechanisms
