Benefits of Treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder

July 22, 2014 Lauren Hardy, MA

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a mental health illness that is often difficult to treat and can become quite frustrating for the individual suffering from it, as well as for his or her family members. Those with borderline personality disorder see things in black and white, they are resistant to change, often have what they perceive as emergencies, and tend to participate in self-harming (Self-Injury and Borderline Personality Disorder) or suicidal behaviors. While all of these symptoms are distressing, one of the most difficult problems occurs when individuals with borderline personality disorder refuse to get treatment. They may be in denial about their disorder (Do I Have BPD? Take our Borderline Personality Disorder Test) or are just unwilling to get the help they need. The bottom line is that, in order to effectively manage BPD, some form of treatment must be received.
