Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a mental health condition that has an impact on the way a person thinks and feels about themselves and others. It has an effect on the way a person experiences their emotions and copes with relationships and challenging situations. Symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder can include psychological distress, self-harm or suicidal behaviours, intense anger, fear or anxiety and emotional distress when being separated from family or friends.
If you are experiencing Borderline Personality Disorder, know that other people are experiencing similar thoughts and behaviours, and there is evidence-based treatment to help you live a life worth living.
