Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a serious mental illness characterized by pervasive instability in moods, interpersonal relationships, self-image, and behavior. This instability often disrupts family, relationships, work life, and the individual's sense of self-identity. While BPD is less well known than schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, it is more common, affecting 2 percent of adults, mostly young women. People affected by BPD exhibit a high rate of self-injury without suicidal intent, significant rate of suicide attempts, and in severe cases completed suicide. Patients with BPD often need extensive mental health services, and many improve over time and are able to lead productive lives.
