Public Mental Health: Pushing the boundaries – Seminar 1

Seminar 1: Developing a public mental health approach to improve thinking around ‘personality
disorder’ 10 February 2021

This seminar centres on the diagnosis of personality disorder. There are two factors that make this an interesting
starting point for pushing boundaries in public mental health:

  1. It’s a tricky one! – It raises a number of fundamental questions on the nature of self,
    identity, the relationships between people and themselves and each other.
  2. There is little consensus or orthodoxy. – We can focus our efforts on developing a
    constructive new approach rather than dismantling rigid but flawed established
    traditions.
