Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a mental health condition that’s characterized by unstable moods, self-image, and difficulty managing behavior and emotions. These symptoms often cause impulsive actions and relationship issues.
Outcomes can be very good for people living with Borderline Personality Disorder, especially if they are actively involved in treatment. With CTI’s specialized therapy, most patients with BPD will find that their symptoms have reduced drastically and their lives enhanced.
There are 9 specific diagnostic symptoms for borderline personality disorder. To be diagnosed with BPD, you must meet 5 of the 9 criteria.
An estimated 1.4% of adults in the US experiences Borderline Personality Disorder. Nearly 75% of people that have been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder are women. There has been recent research that implies that men actually may be equally affected by BPD, but unfortunately they are commonly misdiagnosed as having Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or simply depression.
Borderline personality disorder is a lifelong condition that can cause tremendous damage if left untreated. During times of increased stress or external pressures (work, family, a new relationship, etc.), the symptoms of the personality disorder may begin to seriously interfere with emotional and psychological functioning.
Our personality disorders treatment program helps clients identify unhealthy ways of relating to others, learn ways to break these patterns, and better manage stress and triggers.
