You have probably experienced difficulties finding reliable information, support and effective treatment. TARA has a long-term plan for improving the lives of people with BPD. Please help us meet our goals to bring hope to BPD. Our goals:

  1. Encourage NEW BPD Research

  3. Raise awareness of your BPD experiences through
    TARA Grassroots Research surveys

  4. Teach TARA Methodology so families can help effectively

  5. Decrease stigma against people with BPD and families

Thank you for your generous support that allowed us to bring Diana Ban, a TARA student intern, to her first international BPD Conference, held in Mannheim, Germany, and Boris Litvin to his first neuroscience conference, the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology in Hollywood, Florida in December 2018.

Please make a donation to TARA. Any amount, large or small, will help us to continue our work to help you. Our goal is to ensure that you are aware of the latest advances in research and treatment. We also want to inspire students to study BPD by exposing them to cutting-edge BPD research.

Thank you in advance for your generosity! 

Best wishes for a Happy New Year!

 Boris Litvin’s Conference Experience

“I am grateful to TARA4BPD donors for giving me the opportunity to attend the cutting-edge neuroscience seminars and poster sessions, present TARA’s Poster: Familial Relationship Between BPD and Autism, and network at the ACNP 2018 conference. This, my first conference experience, gave me new ideas about my future career. My heartfelt thanks to all of you!”
