Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a mental health disorder characterized by intense and unstable emotions, impulsive behavior, distorted self-image, and unstable relationships. People with BPD experience significant difficulties regulating their emotions, which can lead to sudden and extreme shifts in mood and behavior.

Symptoms of BPD can include:

  • Intense fear of abandonment

  • Unstable sense of self-identity

  • Impulsive and risky behavior (e.g., reckless driving, substance abuse, gambling, or unsafe sex)

  • Recurrent suicidal thoughts, self-harm, or suicidal behavior

  • Extreme mood swings and difficulty regulating emotions

  • Intense and unstable interpersonal relationships

  • Chronic feelings of emptiness

  • Paranoia, dissociation, or other types of distorted thinking

It's important to note that there are different types of therapy that can be helpful for BPD. The specific approach will depend on the individual's needs and goals and should be determined in consultation with MHRS’s admissions team.
