Be a part of the movement that helps change how we see and treat mental illness. RethinkBPD.
Our character-driven documentary is looking for people willing to share their stories and experience with Borderline Personality Disorder. As a documentary intending to air on national television and have extensive DVD distribution, sharing your story is a real opportunity to raise awareness, dispel myths and combat stigma long associated with BPD. If you would like to share your story with us, please email our director, Jesse Sweet (firstname.lastname@example.org) expressing your interest. We will then set up an off-the-record phone call with you and the producer and/or director. In this initial conversation there is no commitment to participate in the documentary further.
We are looking for people who will be comfortable and open sharing their lives and BPD diagnosis with others, with a potential to reach a national audience.The documentary will be produced with the utmost respect and sensitivity for those we are helping to tell their stories.
