Emotions Matters encourages those impacted by borderline personality disorder (BPD) who seek support to get connected as part of recovery. 

Living with BPD can be isolating, if you think “you are the only one” struggling to manage BPD.   Many report that a support network helped them cope with their disorder and function at work, in school, in relationships, and in the community. 

Emotions Matter offers:

Peer support at quarterly meetings in New York City and our BPD Leadership team.  This support is for individuals, family members, or clinicians who share our mission of BPD advocacy.  Meetings are a chance for people to meet each other and work on shared projects of Emotions Matter.

A closed secret Facebook group for individuals with BPD.  This group is for those who are in treatment, have an understanding of BPD, accept their diagnosis and seek peer support.  It is also for individuals who accept our Facebook social media posts guidelines. To join this group, click here and fill out the group membership form.   For questions, contact Peer Administrators, Teresa Burgado and Chelsea Spearman at

A monthly telephone support group for those who have lost loved ones to BPD.  This group meets by phone one the 2nd or 3rd Friday of each month from 1 to 2:00 p.m. EST.  For more information, contact Paula Tusiani-Eng, LMSW, at

Opportunities for families and clinicians impacted by BPD to get involved in raising awareness and advocacy together at events.  Events are a common way that like-minded members can meet and find informal community support.  Members are encouraged to volunteer at events to raise awareness about BPD.   To receive our monthly E-Newsletter with the latest event updates, email  We welcome volunteers to serve on our events committee!
