Family Information Series: Personality disorders and recovery

St Patrick's Mental Health Services (SPMHS) is hosting the next webinar in the family information series on 17 May.

The next webinar in our Mental Health Recovery: A Family Perspective series focuses on Personality disorders and recovery’ and will be led by Dr Gavin Rush, Consultant Psychiatrist at St Patrick's Mental Health Services.

A personality disorder is a type of mental disorder in which you have an unhealthy pattern of thinking, functioning and behaving, an enduring set of thoughts feeling and behaviours, present since before adolescence and persistent throughout adult life.

When supporting a loved one in mental health recovery, family members often find it challenging to access simple practical information on mental ill health, services, support and self-care. This webinar aims to address any questions or concerns you, as a carer, may have.

Registration is free but essential; register your place at the lecture here.
