Project Air Strategy for Personality Disorders

Project Air Strategy for Personality Disorders seeks to support better treatment for personality disorders in NSW.

Project Air Strategy for Personality Disorders was established as a partnership between the Illawarra Health and Medical Research Institute at the University of Wollongong, the NSW Ministry for Health and Local NSW Health Districts. The Project engages with the communities, families, carers, consumers and health and drug and alcohol services.

Their aim is to enhance treatment options for people with Personality Disorder and their families and carers, and support the development of personality disorder-inclusive health services.

To meet these aims, Project Air Strategy offers a range of services including:

  • resources to support people with personality disorders, their family members and carers
  • evidence based training and consultation for health professionals, services and organisations who work with people with personality disorders
  • resources to support health professionals in their work with people with personality disorder, their families and carers.

Project Air Strategy also conducts research to further improve understanding of personality disorders and improve treatment outcomes.
