I went to some of their meetings a while back to get help for myself. I dont have BPD but i was there dealing with some other stuff. As far as what it was like for me i went to a group therapy meeting but there was only a few people there like maybe 1 or 2 people so for me it wasnt very helpful andi eventually quit going. NAMI i think is more or less for people that are living with somebody with a mental illness more than the people with the illness themselves. At least thats what i got from the times i attended. You cant base my experience on how yours will be though because its all local chapters kind of like AA or NA its run by different people in your area and may or may not be settup and run differently. If i was you id just find out when theyre having meetings and just go and see how it is. At worse you lose an hour of your time and then at least youll know for sure. I do hope it helps though and youll go. Heres their website so you can find out where your local chapter meets. https://www.nami.org/#
