Venice Beach, CA (PRWEB) February 19, 2013
Leading Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) experts from across the country will gather in Los Angeles on Friday, March 22, 2013, at a fundraising dinner to benefit individuals and families affected by BPD.
The dinner, hosted by Clearview Treatment Programs Women’s Center for Borderline Personality Disorder in Los Angeles, will benefit the National Education Alliance for Borderline Personality Disorder (NEABPD) Family Connections program.
“Families are impacted by Borderline Personality Disorder just as much as the person diagnosed,” said Michael Roy, MSW, LCSW, founder and executive director of Clearview Treatment Programs and Clearview Women’s Center for Borderline Personality and Emotional Disorders. “We’re thrilled to collaborate with NEABPD to bring together leading experts on BPD to help raise funds and awareness for more effective BPD treatment for both those diagnosed with BPD and their families.”

Attendees of the fundraiser will have the opportunity to dine and chat with these leading Borderline Personality Disorder experts:
- Blaise Aguirre, MD, medical director of 3 East at Harvard-affiliated McLean Hospital, and an expert in child, adolescent, and adult psychotherapy, including Dialectical Behavior Therapy.
