Hello. This is Dr Geyik and I will be assisting you today.

Can I please ask if you have seen your GP for an initial assessment?

BPD is a big diagnosis and is not normally diagnosed online as you need to see a psychiatrist face to face for a formal diagnosis. They need to assess you physically and observe your behaviour.

So, I suggest you contact your GP for the initial assessment and then the referral.
