I am new to this forum.
My daughter is 24, diagnosed with BPD around 6 years ago, but it was with her a long time before the diagnosis
She has a 12 month old boy, living in regional QLD. About to come home, Sydney, as she is struggling with her illness and baby
I am looking for services in Sydney that are not private, as she is on a pension
I found the one at Westmead hosptial, but it only takes people from the area
Also wondering if there is a mothers group for people with mental health in Sydney
Hope you can assist me
