Borderline Personality Disorder

Borderline personality disorder (BPD)

Is a mental health condition in which mood and behavior change rapidly in response to significant stress, especially when interacting with other people.

People with BPD have an intense fear of abandonment and have trouble regulating their emotions

Especially anger. They tend to engage in impulsive and dangerous behaviors, such as reckless driving and threatening self-harm. These behaviors make it difficult for them to maintain relationships. Many people who live with borderline personality disorder don’t know they have it and may not realize there’s a healthier way to behave and relate to others.

Effective treatment of BPD takes time

Patience, and commitment. It may include psychotherapy, cognitive and dialectical behavioral therapy, group therapy, and/or medication.
