Are you caring for or supporting a relative or significant other with a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder or Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder?


Would you like to participate in a research survey that will help the researchers better understand the experience and impact of supporting a person with Borderline Personality Disorder? 

Purpose of the research

Understanding more about the experience of family (e.g. parents, spouses, adult children, adult siblings) and significant others (e.g. partners, friends, ex-spouses, ex-partners) who care for and support people with a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) or Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder (EUPD). The aim of the research is to better understand the experiences of English-speaking adults who care for and support people with BPD or EUPD.

What participation involves

If you choose to participate in this study, you will be asked to answer some questions about yourself, the person with BPD or EUPD, your relationships and your caregiving experience. The survey will take approximately 40 minutes to complete. You do not have to complete the survey in one sitting. However, your data will be deleted if you do not return to the survey within one week of your last entry. Your data will only be included in the research when you have submitted your responses at the end of the survey.

Who should participate?

English speaking adults (aged 18 years or older) who are caring for or supporting a relative (e.g. parent, spouse, child, sibling) or significant other (e.g. friend, partner, ex-partner/spouse) with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) or Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder (EUPD).
 

This study has obtained ethical approval from the University College Cork (UCC) Clinical Psychology Research Ethics Committee and is not affiliated with NEABPD.
