About First Person Plural

First Person Plural was established in 1997 and has been providing training and awareness raising about complex dissociation for most of this time.

FPP is the only national membership charity in the UK which exclusively works for and on behalf of those affected by dissociative identity disorder (DID) (sometimes called multiple personality disorder – MPD) or the similar childhood-trauma-related complex dissociative disorder unhelpfully known as type 1 dissociative disorder not otherwise specified (DDNOS) or type 1 other specified dissociative disorder (OSDD) in DSMv.

It prides itself on working collaboratively with related organisations which share the same ethos and similar aims as FPP.  This includes ESTD, TAG, Pottergate Centre for Dissociation and Trauma, The Survivors Trust, CWP NHS Foundation Trust and others.
