Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a complex mental health disorder that is estimated to affect between 1-6% of Australians in their lifetime. People with BPD have difficulties in interpersonal relationships, an unstable sense of self, and strong emotional responses, which impede their daily functioning and quality of life. They may also engage in impulsive or self-destructive behaviours such as self-harm or drug use, in response to their challenges recognising, managing, and responding to overwhelming or intense emotions.
Many of us became familiar with accessing services online or via telehealth during COVID-19. While most service industries have since returned to pre-pandemic times, telehealth appointments remain available, feasible and an increasingly popular option for individuals seeking mental health support.
What are telehealth psychology appointments? The term telehealth refers to psychology sessions that are conducted over the phone or via video platforms such as Teams, Zoom and Coviu.

While the nature of friendships has changed significantly over the last decade, their importance on our physical, emotional, and mental health has not. Many studies have confirmed what we already knew: people with positive, healthy friendships not only live longer and experience less psychosocial morbidity and mortality, but report greater happiness, wellbeing and satisfaction in all areas of their lives.
