Dear colleagues, friends and ESSPD members,

I am very happy to invite you to our next congress, the 6th International Congress on Borderline Personality Disorder and Allied Disorders. In 2020 we will focus the efforts to help our patients to build a life worth living. The heading of the conference is Change for a better future: Perspectives beyond symptoms. We hope to extend the limits of traditional thinking in science and clinical care by creating a platform for an innovative discussion among researchers, clinicians, members of our health care systems, as well as patients and relatives. Core topics of our discussions will be positive psychology and what we have learned from suicide prevention for supporting a life worth living.

Like in our successful previous conferences, our aim is to open the floor for contributions from different disciplines and fields of research with a specific focus on our patients´ well-being.

Please join us in beautiful Antwerp and submit your valuable contributions to an enriching and inspiring conference.

We hope to meet you in Antwerp.
With best regards,

Stephan Doering, MD
ESSPD President
