What Is Borderline Personality Disorder?

Borderline personality disorder is a serious mental health issue that can inhibit the ability to manage emotions effectively. This can leave the person with a distorted self-image, extreme and unmanageable emotions, or uncontrollable impulsivity, as well as difficulties functioning day to day.

In some cases, people with BPD will often have multiple, co-existing disorders and conditions. These can include addiction, depression, anxiety, and eating disorders. This can make diagnosis and treatment efforts more difficult and easily misdiagnosed.

What Are the Causes of Borderline Personality Disorder?

Research on the causes of borderline personality is still in the early stages. Several causes can be attributed to the development of a borderline personality disorder—a genetic predisposition, early childhood events, or environmental factors may influence this condition.
