This special bulletin (24 pages, in French) aims to inform and equip the caregivers of people with borderline personality disorder (BPD). Published in fall 2014 as a series of articles, it looks at living with BPD and at current treatments and coping strategies. It also offers advice for improving the caregiver/care receiver relationship while underscoring the importance of self-care for the caregiver. There is also a list of recommendations for families.

Though this publication is more than five years old, it stands out for the originality of its topic and its continued relevance for caregivers.

Note that in 2022, the Association québécoise des parents et amis de la personne atteinte de la maladie mentale (AQPAMM) changed its name to Arborescence: pour les proches en santé mentale.
