Borderline Personality Disorder

What is Borderline Personality?

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a serious mental health condition characterized by difficulties in managing emotions effectively. The main feature of BPD is a strong pattern of instability in a person’s relationships, self-image, or emotions.

BPD can be difficult to diagnose, as many of its symptoms can be mistaken for signs of a mood or identity disorder. Symptoms usually begin in late adolescence or early adulthood and occur in 2% – 6% of adults.

What are the symptoms?

Symptoms of anxiety disorders:

  • Rapid changes in mood that last from a few hours to a few days.
  • Issues of identity, self-harm (such as cutting), impulsivity, fear of abandonment, and feelings of emptiness.
  • Emotional turmoil and instability from time to time but an ongoing pattern of instability that interferes with daily functioning and the ability to maintain relationships.
