Borderline Personality Disorder

Borderline Personality Disorder is a mental health condition characterized by difficulties regulating emotion. These difficulties can lead to impulsivity, poor self-image, complicated relationships, and intense emotional responses to frustrations and triggering events. Struggling with self-regulation can often lead one to cause self-harm like cutting. People with BPD can be very impulsive and are typically more sensitive than most people to environmental circumstances. The perception of impending separation or rejection can lead to profound changes in self-image, affect, behavior and cognition. Treatment of borderline personality disorder typically involves long-term psychotherapy with an experienced therapist.
