First Person Plural works with those affected by Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) and similar complex trauma-related dissociative identity conditions. These  include type 1 Dissociative Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (DDNOS), and a type of Other Specified Dissociative Disorder (OSDD) which is described as DID-like. DID itself is sometimes referred to by the older and less accurate term of Multiple Personalities. These conditions are often the result of child abuse and/or neglect but may be caused by other childhood trauma such as ritual abuse.

The work of the charity is to improve knowledge, understanding, & recognition of these often misunderstood conditions. They do this through a number of ways:

  • Resources (factsheets, articles and newsletters)
  • Training courses
  • Membership
  • Support for partners, family, and friends
  • Information and advice for support workers and therapists

The charity is run by volunteers so cannot provide a crisis support service, personalised advice or ongoing one-on-one support by email or other means. They provide a list of suggested links which may be helpful.
