Treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder (BDP)

Do you need residential treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder? BDP is a mental disorder that affects the mental health and emotions of the person. It impacts how we feel and what we do throughout the day. It of course varies from person to person but it usually presents itself through unstable emotions ad behaviors. For people who don’t suffer from BPD, it sometimes is normal to have a fluctuating mood or changes in how others are perceived. However, with individuals with BPD, it is extreme to the point that their normal activities are somehow altered negatively. The look towards the others and the self is affected and always unstable, which makes their daily lives lose the sense of safety that comes with stability.

Since BPD mainly harms any stability with its many side effects, individuals with BPD suffer greatly. Not completing education, having complicated relationships, being involved in abusive relationships, and losing jobs repeatedly are some of the consequences that one might have to deal with. Someone with BPD will suffer greatly from other mental disorders as well since the mind is very intricate. Even the self-image and thoughts about one’s future can be negatively viewed, to the point where the individuals are driven to hurt people around them themselves. BPD can co-exist with eating disorders, ADHD, PTSD, depression, and others.

The exact causes for BPD can be different for each person. Genetic factors, traumatic experiences, and external factors play a crucial role. BPD is exhausting and causes many troubles in daily life.
