The topic of the month for June is going to be Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). BPD is a mental illness that makes it tough for a person to have confidence in themselves, which causes issues regulating emotions & impulses. Most people diagnosed with BPD have problems relating to other people & socializing.

Conquering emotional problems, feeling a sense of self-worth, and developing better relationships are the main goals of treatment for borderline personality disorder.

The exact cause or causes of BPD is not known. It is most likely caused by genetics as well as nature-nurture.

There is no test for BPD. It can only be diagnosed by a mental health professional after discussing different topics and getting to know the patient. The diagnosis can only be made if the individual has several signs & symptoms.

Medication is not usually appropriate for individuals with BPD but can be used short-term to manage a certain symptom. There are different methods of treatment for BPD, some are conventional while others are holistic.

Self-care is an important part of everybody's life. it is especially important for those with mental illnesses so it can help alleviate stress & allow for thoughts and ideas to be focused on and understood.
