postheadericon Sanctuary for Children of Personality Disorder Patients

Being a child of parents suffering from Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) and Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) can be a big challenge. Growing up is sure not easy. This is the very reason why Sanctuary, a support group for adult children of NPD and BPD parents was established. The organization aims to provide a safe, loving and supportive environment for people who were able to survive the abusive and dysfunctional family they were born in. The organization wants these people to connect with, develop and share healthy friendships with other survivors.

On the 24th day of May, Dr. John McMahon, the principal Clinical Psychologist of Sydney Clinical Psychologist Centre, gave a talk on Personality Disorders to Sanctuary members. The event was held at Harris Park Community Center.

It is the hope of the Centre to provide more meaningful meetups with the Sanctuary members. Dr. McMahon and the rest of the team are always open to meeting with you to further assist you in your battle with personality disorder.
