Paula Tusiani-Eng’s sister was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) after multiple hospitalizations and months of self-harm symptoms and suicidal thoughts. Although her treatment plan helped to stabilize her behaviors, one of the medications caused her to suffer a rare stroke and she died in 2001. Paula has since dedicated her life to supporting, educating and advocating for people impacted by borderline personality disorder through her organization, Emotions Matter.
