Personality Disorder

Page written and resources collated by Andi Baker, Senior Wellbeing Practitioner

Someone’s personality is their characteristic patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving that remain fairly consistent across situations and over time. ‘Borderline personality disorder’ is the term used within mental health services to describe long standing difficulties in how an individual thinks and feels about themselves and others, and consequently how they behave in relation to other people. BPD is also referred to as Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder (EUPD).
