Support Borderline Personality Disorder Awareness

March 25, 2008

A bipartisan coalition of House members, led by Representative Tom Davis (R-VA) and Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), have introduced a resolution to increase awareness of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and authorize the first ever BPD Awareness Month.  NAMI strongly supports H. Res. 1005 and is urging all House members to cosponsor the measure.  NAMI has joined with the National Education Alliance for Borderline Personality Disorder to press for action on this measure.

Act Now!

Send a letter to your House member and urge them to cosponsor H.Res. 1005. Help bring light to Borderline Personality Disorder!
