I have no hope left. Ive had three years of dbt from NHS but thats all I've been given. I can't hold a job. I have no money so certainly private therapy is no option. My depression has got worse. My bpd is bad and I can't control it and I feel like it's my fault the dbt skills I continue to try don't help. I feel so alone. What can anyone suggest please I'm desperate

Are you still under the mental health team? One thing that I think is helping me and giving me something positive to think about, is they set up an employment advisor for me when I mentioned not being able to work is a source of depression. This is very different than the types of advisors you get at the job centre. This guy is part of the mental health team so answers to your care coordinator , and he works to find suitable jobs/training that would suit your needs.

Still under them, but my consultant and care coordinator both say I'm not well enough to work at the moment because of how bad my depression and bpd is at the moment. I lost my last job due to mental illness and making constant mistakes without realising ..I can't cope with life , nothing I do to help myself helps
