What is Borderline Personality Disorder?
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a mental health condition characterized by unstable mood, self-image, and interpersonal relationships, often marked by impulsivity and intense fear of abandonment.
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a complex mental health condition characterized by enduring patterns of emotional instability, impulsivity, and difficulties in interpersonal relationships. Individuals with BPD often experience intense mood swings, unstable self-esteem, and chronic feelings of emptiness. They may engage in risky behaviors, such as self-harm or substance abuse, and have a strong fear of abandonment, which can lead to tumultuous relationships. The exact cause of BPD is not fully understood, but a combination of genetic, environmental, and neurobiological factors is thought to contribute to its development. Treatment for BPD often involves dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and other forms of psychotherapy to help individuals manage their emotional dysregulation, improve relationships, and develop healthier coping strategies.
