Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a common mental illness that affects more than 3 million people. It is marked by unstable moods, behavior, and relationships. People who suffer from BPD have problems regulating emotions and thoughts, impulsive and reckless behavior, and unstable relationships with other people.
This disorder occurs in most people by early adulthood which by this time a pattern of interacting with others and the environment has been established. These patterns of interaction have been set by an individual’s self-image and early social interactions and can be found in two or more of the following areas: cognition; affect; interpersonal functioning; or impulse control. The enduring pattern is inflexible and pervasive across a broad range of personal and social situations. It typically leads to significant distress or impairment in social, work or other areas of functioning.
