borderline personality disorder

May is Borderline Personality Disorder Awareness Month. The condition, which is also known as emotionally unstable personality disorder, is often misunderstood and, unlike many other mental health diagnoses, carries a stigma.

To mark the month we have brought together a series of related articles from Mental Health Practice and other RCNi journals. We hope that they will raise awareness of the challenges faced by people living with the feelings and behaviours associated with the condition and support your practice.
