Teacup Conversation is spending a week interviewing various people on the topic of Mental Health and Disability, in the hopes to shed light on the lives and experiences of those who are affected.
Today’s topic is Borderline Personality Disorder, or BPD. Website bpdworld.org states that BPD is: ” one of ten personality disorders recognised by the DSM IV. A personality disorder is a type of mental illness and to be diagnosed particular criteria must be met. With personality disorders, the symptoms have usually been present for a long time. These symptoms have an overall negative affect on the sufferer’s life.”
