borderline personality disorder

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a mental disorder qualified by instability in relationships, moods, and behavior. It is typically diagnosed in early adulthood, as symptoms in children and teens can be confused with incomplete development and growing personalities. Psych Central reports that somewhere between 1.6 and 5.9 percent of Americans likely suffer from BPD.

But BPD is much more complicated than unstable relationships. Borderline personality disorder is a complex mental health issue that manifests itself differently through various subtypes and often disguises itself as another mental illness. So how does a person develop BPD? Twin studies suggest it could sometimes be hereditary, but that’s certainly not true all the time.

What is the main cause of borderline personality disorder?

Intensive, a specialized program within the Optimum Performance Institute, is a program for young adults moving from adolescence to young adulthood with disorders of emotion regulation such as Borderline Personality Disorder and BPD Traits that may include co-occurring conditions such as mood disorders, eating disorders, PTSD, Chemical Dependency, Depression and other challenges.
