Help us to help others!
In view of the challenging financial situation of many psychiatric hospitals, it is our goal to provide metacognitive training for borderline personality disorder (B-MCT) at a low cost. However, your donation is essential to our work and will help to improve the lives of many individuals suffering from borderline personality disorder. We would be very grateful if you would support B-MCT by making a donation.
We guarantee that all donations will go to the further development of B-MCT (future tasks: translation of modules into other languages, creation of new graphics, hiring students to perform B-MCT in clinics). Upon request, we will send you a receipt for your donation (please send an email to Steffen Moritz (firstname.lastname@example.org) and include your mail address). Please inquire about different possibilities for sponsorships.
