An area of mental health, particularly pertinent to young people in care, where most clinicians tend to struggle, is Personality Disorders.

The majority of young people in care DO NOT have Personality Disorders. However, they often present with features that are similar to, and perhaps have similar origins to Personality Disorders – in particular, Borderline Personality Disorder.

Bryan’s intention in writing this book is to help young people in care and their carers (both professional and vocational), to understand why these young people may experience, and process emotions differently to some of their mainstream peers.

The characters in this book are fictional, and are in no way intended to be indicative of any profession, organisation or group of people.
