I have a psychiatric disability but not specifically bpd. I do know that some people who post here who live with bpd might have some more specific ideas. I do know that dbt therapy is helpful for people with bpd (including for some people I've known off site diagnosed with it). In general I know that family therapy or support groups for family and friends can be helpful. This is a helpful site that has some support groups that might be of help as regards bpd (among their listings).
