Considered to be one of the most misunderstood and misdiagnosed mental illnesses, Borderline Personality Disorder is a personality disorder marked by an ongoing pattern of varying moods, challenges with self-image, and a pattern of unstable relationships. Symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder often result in impulsive actions and difficulties in relationships.
New insights into Borderline Personality Disorder have led to new, more effective treatments; making the prognosis for someone diagnosed with the disorder much more promising. Current research shows that with the right support and treatment, most people with Borderline Personality Disorder will be able to terminate the diagnostic label.
Borderline Personality Disorder is referred to as a bio-social disorder; meaning that it starts with a biological inclination which is exacerbated by the social environment. Causes of Borderline Personality Disorder is believed to be a result of an invalidating childhood environment, trauma, abuse, and neglect. The disorder can also be a result of caregivers minimizing or discounting a child’s emotional reactions, if they believe it is exaggerated or inappropriate.

1) Frantic efforts to avoid abandonment whether real or imagined
2) An unstable self image or sense of self
3) Dangerous impulsivity such as unsafe sexual encounters or substance abuse
4) Suicidal ideation
5) Emotional instability due to high reactivity
