First of all, this post is about a friend. My friend was diagnosed with BPD three weeks ago, and he told me about it today. I know little about it, but a quick google search, and I read that people with BPD typically have a tendency to inflict self harm, and that around 3 to 10% of them end up committing suicide in the long run (Courtesy: wikipedia). I want to help my friend out of this, and I don't want him to cause any self harm. As a friend of a guy who has been recently diagnosed with BPD, what all I am supposed to do on my part ? How can I help him ? I really love my friend, and want to do whatever little I can to help him deal with this. Any suggestions are deeply appreciated.
