Personality disorder or borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a type of mental illness. It affects people in various ways. However, mainly this disorder causes people to have extreme ranges of behaviors and moods. Most people who have this disorder first get their diagnosis in adolescent years.
If you believe you have personality disorder, please reach out to us here at Blue Hills Recovery in Worcester, MA. We want to help treat the disorder, so you can finally regain control over your emotions and your life.
Statistics on Personality Disorders
Research shows that about 1.5% of the adults in the United States have borderline personality disorder. However, there are also many people who go untreated, so there very well could be a lot more than that. Around ¾ of the people who do receive a BPD diagnosis are women. One of the reasons for this is that many men feel uncomfortable or ashamed when talking about their moods and emotions, so they avoid getting help.
If you are a man or a woman who struggles with severe moods or behaviors, don’t keep doing it on your own. Our team, here at Blue Hills Recovery, can create an individualized personality disorder treatment plan to help you.
