  • Occupational Therapy and Borderline Personality Disorder
    Occupational therapy can be a valuable resource for individuals living with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). BPD is a complex mental health condition that affects a person’s emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. The condition can have a significant impact on a person’s ability to participate in daily activities, such as work, school, and socializing. Occupational therapists are trained to work with individuals to identify their strengths, limitations, and goals related to daily activities.
