What is borderline personality disorder?

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a mental illness. It often includes unstable moods, relationships, and self-identity.

They may have impulsive and self-destructive behaviors, such as substance abuse, gambling, risky sexual activity, and eating disorders. BPD can be very difficult to manage and treat. If you think you might have BPD, talk to your doctor or a mental health professional. Treatment can help you manage symptoms and improve your quality of life.
