INDIVIDUALISED VOCATIONAL SUPPORT FOR YOUTH WITH BORDERLINE PERSONALITY DISORDER: A RANDOMISED CONTROLLED TRIAL
Grant number: 1144022 | Funding period: 2018 - 2022
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a severe mental disorder that can significantly disrupt normal vocational (i.e., education and employment) development. This trial investigates whether early intervention with a specialised Individual Placement and Support (IPS) model for vocational recovery is more effective than usual vocational supports for 15-25 year olds with BPD. It is expected that IPS will result in more days in mainstream employment and education.
