Guide to not receiving a diagnosis of personality disorder

Guide to not receiving a diagnosis of personality disorder

Zoom in to this image and read text description

Here is another guide, this time most of it not written by me, but a collaborative endeavour from Recovery in the Bin. My contribution was turning it into a leaflet, and adding the extra text and images. There isn't room to show the whole leaftlet, but here are the first 4 pages.

I shared this leaflet on SOAP Facebook page and then Sarah Connor, presumably from 'Recovery In The Bin' chastised me for sharing a 'draft' leaflet and asked me to take it down. I have since been removed from 'Recovery in the Bin'. What is their problem?! I shared it because I thought it was good!
