Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)

Borderline Personality Disorder

What is borderline personality disorder? A mental health disorder that causes you to be intensely unstable through your moods, relationships, self-image, and behaviours.

Stressful situations can cause someone with BDP to act out in a negative manner such as yelling. Rapid mood swings can cause your loved ones to feel devalued, angry or hated. Parenting with a borderline personality disorder or parenting a child with a borderline personality disorder can be detrimental if it is not dealt with properly. A parent with BDP goes back and forth between hostile over-involvement in their child’s life to under-involvement with or without neglect.

Children with BDP act out when they feel no one understands them or likes them. Children can be depressed or angry as a result of irregular emotions resulting from their disorder.

Our therapists can help you find the strength to express your emotions and engage with those you love warmly. Opening up communication can change a negative situation into a positive one.
