The BRIDGE Project is a clinical research trial that explores the possibility of providing a treatment programme for young people with symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) in the general population. It is led for UofG by Mental Health and Wellbeing's Ruchika Gajwani.

To mark the forthcoming awareness week, the team is inviting art work from anyone whose life is impacted by BPD.

We welcome entries of any art form (i.e. paintings, photos, poems, blogs), which represents your experience of BPD. This can be either your own personal experience of living with BPD or your experience of supporting someone with BPD. Anyone can enter – those with lived experience, family, friends and mental health practitioners. It is important that the piece you submit is safe to share as some work will be displayed on their website, and if you wish you can submit anonymously.

Please email your entry to If you wish to share your art anonymously, please state this in your email.

The deadline for entries is 03 June 2022. Winners will be announced on 10 June 2022. Prize for first place is a £50 Amazon voucher, and for two runners-up will each receive a £30 Amazon voucher.
