Jo Mullen is a former teacher with first-hand knowledge of mental ill-health. She has drawn upon her experences of living and coping with BPD to write a booklet (BPD: A Personal Story). Following this, Jo created a programme to encourage the development of self-awareness for others with BPD, and those with similar social and emotional difficulties. This programme is called, Wot R U Like? and is currently the subject of a research project carried out by staff at Abertay University.
Jo enjoys working collaboratively with professionals: she delivers Wot R U Like? training with Nadine (her former community mental health nurse); and, alongside Karin (a liaison nurse practitioner), has undertaken an audit of A and E staff attitudes towards people who attend her local hospital with self-harm concerns.
Jo has also produced a booklet of short stories for adults, 'Rescuing the Children,' with suggested themes for discussion. She has just finished creating Personapoly, a board game to accompany Wot R U Like?
