Borderline personality disorder is an often misunderstood mental disorder. People who struggle with BPD might receive a misdiagnosis or none at all. It is a disorder characterized by instability in mood, behavior, and self-image. During this hour of Talk of Iowa, host Charity Nebbe talks with Ross Trowbridge, who lives with BPD about his new project #Iamnotashamed.
Dr. Donald Black is professor of psychiatry at the University of Iowa, and he also joins the conversation. Black helped develop the STEPPS program, which is a form of therapy to treat the disorder.
