Aims & scope

Borderline Personality Disorder and Emotion Dysregulation provides a platform for researchers and clinicians interested in borderline personality disorder (BPD) as a currently highly challenging psychiatric disorder. Emotion dysregulation is at the core of BPD but also stands on its own as a major pathological component of the underlying neurobiology of various other psychiatric disorders. The journal focuses on the psychological, social and neurobiological aspects of emotion dysregulation as well as epidemiology, phenomenology, pathophysiology, treatment, neurobiology, genetics, and animal models of BPD.

The National Education Alliance for Borderline Personality Disorder (NEA.BPD) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization established in 2001 by four family members, two consumers and one mental health professional. An internationally recognized organization, NEA.BPD is dedicated to building lives for millions of people affected by borderline personality disorder (BPD).

NEA.BPD works with families, professionals and people in recovery to raise public awareness, provide education, promote research and work with public entities such as the Congress of the United States to enhance the quality of life for those affected by this serious but treatable mental illness.

NEA.BPD has convened over 60 conferences in the past decade, has hosted 55 Call-in research presentations, provides a program called Family Connections to friends and family of persons with BPD offered in 16 countries, and sponsors the largest media library on BPD in the world. NEA.BPD has received several national awards, including from the American Psychiatric Association and the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
