May is BPD Awareness Month!

Posted on

Borderline Personality Disorder is a serious psychiatric illness. But there is hope. There has been considerable progress in the last 25 years both in understanding and treating BPD. Now there are treatments shown to be effective. The most researched and well known is Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). 

People with BPD have extreme difficulties regulating their emotions. Common problems include anger, chaotic relationships, impulsivity, unstable sense of self, suicidal attempts and thoughts, self-harm, shame, fears of abandonment, and chronic feelings of emptiness.

People with BPD often have intense and stormy relationships. Attitudes toward family, friends and loved ones may shift suddenly. Relationship problems are common and the behaviors are difficult for loved ones to manage effectively. Additionally, stress in relationships can make for even more challenges.

If you or anyone you know may be living with Borderline Personality Disorder, please call us, our Dialectical Behavior Therapy Team can help (305) 857-0050.
