What the service does

The self-harm and personality disorder team aims to:

  • help you manage your emotions
  • reduce your self-harm
  • improve your relationships with others

We assess, diagnose and treat adult patients who self-harm and have emotionally unstable personality disorder (EUPD).

We provide mentalisation based treatment (MBT), which is delivered in a group setting. This treatment helps you understand your own mind (self-awareness) and the mind of others (empathy). Mentalisation based treatment is recommended by NICE for borderline personality disorder (BPD).

We also provide consultation and advice to other services.
