Petition to change the name and designation of BPD

4 Comments

There’s been a lot of talk about the DSM-V (Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorder 5th edition) that is coming out in May 2013, particularly the concept of re-naming and changing the designation of BPD.

Check out this forum on About.com, and a bpd advocacy site with a link to an online petition to the Chair of the DSM-V Task Force:

About.com Discussion on bpd name change

Info & link to sign the petition

For more info on the proposed changes to the DSM and the 5th edition:

Blessings on your day,

A capricorn horse. Creative dreamer, over thinker. bpd, insecure attachment and any other labels for deep and chronic wounds and other gifts of brilliance that propel intense and eclectic lives and make for good art. We are high needs and high return, all the way, all the way. Surrender, integration, repair, rebuild, connect, create, evolve. Deeply.
