The theme I have chosen for my final project is mental health, particularly portraying the effects of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Whilst I don’t have the condition myself, one of my closer relatives has been diagnosed with the disorder.

Getting diagnosed with BPD is very similar to autism in the way that it’s a long process, especially as a woman with either of the conditions. Doctors are not as well trained to spot the signs in women as they are men, and I don’t think this is something that should be ignored.

The disorder is often heavily stigmatised by the media and the psychiatric field. My project is a visual representation of the condition as, my subject whom the project is related to is uncomfortable to be showcased in images.
