    Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is characterized by marked instability in functioning, affect, mood, interpersonal relationships, and, at times, reality testing. BPD is associated with significant morbidity due to common comorbid conditions, including dysthymia, major depression, psychoactive substance abuse, and psychotic disorders. Approximately 70-75% of patients with BPD have a history of at least 1 deliberate act of self-harm, and the mean estimated rate of completed suicides is 9%.

    This overview is written as a clinician's reference. It should not be used to diagnose an illness,which should always be done by a competent medical professional.
    Due to its length, a copy of the entire article (8 pages) is attached for download / viewing / printing.
