The new dawn promised twenty years ago by the national policy publication Personality disorder: No longer a diagnosis of exclusion has failed to materialise. Individuals with complex emotional needs that may result in a “personality disorder” diagnosis continue to report stigma within mental health services and a struggle to get care that is accessible, holistic, and effective. Continuity of care and strong therapeutic alliances are similarly lacking. Complex emotional needs research, meanwhile, lags behind the rest of the mental health field. Research is both underdeveloped and underfunded; where it does exist, there are concerns that the questions that matter to service users, clinicians, and policy makers are not being addressed.

How might care and research be radically re-thought to ensure service users receive the right support? Join our expert panel to discuss how care can be transformed for people with complex emotional needs, and what research is needed to drive this change.

This MHQT (Mental Health Question Time) coincides with completion of a programme of NIHR Mental Health Policy Research Unit work on complex emotional needs, and is delivered within International Borderline Personality Disorder Awareness month.
