Q&A PANELISTS Jonathan Marin, LMSW, Clinical Social Worker, U-M Department of Psychiatry Kathleen Diehl, MSW, Manager, Patient & Family Services, U-M Department of Psychiatry Michael Jibson, LMSW, Clinical Professor & Associate Chair for Education and Academic Affairs, U-M Department of Psychiatry Stephen Huprich, PhD, Professor of Psychology, University of Detroit Mercy About the Topic Borderline Personality Disorder is a serious mental illness, but one that is sometimes not well understood, by patients and families, clinicians, and society as a whole. It is perhaps the most stigmatized disorder in all of medicine, which creates confusion, poor outcomes, and a sense of hopelessness for everyone involved. Borderline Personality Disorder affects an estimated 18 million Americans during their lifetimes, and causes numerous stressful symptoms, including unstable mood, suicidal and self-harm thoughts and behaviors, and chaotic relationships. While the disorder causes great distress, treatment varies widely and research is lacking. Recent research indicates that the prognosis for those with Borderline Personality Disorder is much better than previously thought, and existing and emerging treatments have demonstrated significant efficacy. The role of medications in those treatments has been further elucidated, the role of families has been made clear, and a better understanding of how to manage safety concerns has developed. Bright Nights events are free to attend and open to the public! Learn More
