Shehrina Rooney

founded the YouTube channel Recovery Mum in 2015 and co-founded The BPD House website in 2017. She was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD) at age 21, after struggling for more than half her life with fear of abandonment, self-hatred, anger, and eventually addiction. Although dialectical behavior therapy helped, her “dark years” continued into motherhood and through a divorce. Attending 12-step meetings, she realized peer support could work for BPD, too. Today, she dedicates her life to encouraging others who face the same struggles. She is grateful to have the skills to calm her emotions and be a wonderful mum.
