Full house at personality disorders talk
19 February 2014

More than 80 members of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust (CPFT) attended an event in Cambridge on 18 February to find out more about personality disorders.

The talk was given by CPFT Medical Director Dr Chess Denman who talked about the different types of personality disorders that affect one in 10 people.

Dr Denman (pictured above) is an expert in personality disorders and was responsible for founding the CPFT personality disorders service and its associated ward – Springbank.

Members also heard from a carer about his experiences of supporting someone with a personality disorder.

The event was organised by Lauren MacIntyre, Corporate Governance Manager at CPFT, who said: “We were really thrilled at the positive response to the talk and how many members were able to attend. It was great to hear from one of our experts and get the perspective from a carer, too.”

The talk at Cambridge Central Library was the first in a series of events that are being held for CPFT members.
