The MACEDONIA SUPPORT NETWORK Against Domestic Violence is to organize for collective power by advancing transformative work, thinking and leadership of communities and individuals working to end the violence in our lives. We believe violence against women and children results from the use of force or threat to achieve and maintain control over others in intimate relationships, and from societal abuse of power and domination in the forms of sexism, racism, homophobia, classism, anti-Semitism, able-bodyism, ageism and other oppressions.

MACEDONIA SUPPORT NETWORK recognizes that the abuses of power in society foster battering by perpetuating conditions, which condone violence against women and children. Therefore, it is the mission of MACEDONIA SUPPORT NETWORK to work for major societal changes necessary to eliminate both personal and societal violence against all women and children.

MACEDONIA SUPPORT NETWORK's work includes coalition building at the local, state, regional and national levels; support for the provision of community-based, non-violent alternatives - such as safe home and shelter programs - for battered women and their children; public education and technical assistance; policy development and innovative legislation; focus on the leadership of MACEDONIA SUPPORT NETWORK's caucuses developed to represent the concerns of organizationally under represented groups; and efforts to eradicate social conditions which contribute to violence against women and children.

PDAN is a network for awareness and prevention of personality disorders. We seek empathy toward people with BPD or another PD, for what they are going through. We often present topics from the viewpoint of the caretakers.

If you have recovered from BPD or are able to control its symptoms, PDAN is a good community for you. If you are in treatment, we recommend you look for a support group for people in treatment; (we can suggest some). You are welcome to be here too, and your viewpoint is very much valued. Yet some things being said here might trigger you.

The three main goals of PDAN are to:
- increase public awareness of personality disorders,
- alleviate the impact of personality disorders on families,
- prevent the development of personality disorders in children.

PDAN is here to offer ongoing support, education, commitment, and compassion to the individuals and families enduring the relational trauma caused by Personality Disorders. Through our informative books, child- and adult-friendly website, social media presence and community of online professionals, we remain dedicated to the healing processes, and empowerment, of those who are either directly or indirectly affected by these challenging mental illnesses.
