Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a complex and largely misunderstood mental health condition. While widely believed to be rare, it is actually more common than many better-known disorders. And while people with BPD often experience intense emotional instability and tend to struggle with beliefs and thoughts about themselves and others, the condition is much more treatable than generally thought. Unfortunately, these kinds of awareness gaps create confusion and stigma that can keep people from getting the help they need.
So, just what is the truth about BPD? How can we recognize it in ourselves and others? And who’s at risk of developing this disorder?
Join us as Karen L. Jacob, PhD, explains how borderline personality disorder is diagnosed and treated, provides tips for supporting someone living with the condition, and answers audience questions about the causes and symptoms of BPD.
