I made this video to provide much needed information on borderline personality disorder (BPD) and it is intended to clarify many of the myths of BPD that are on YouTube and the internet. If you, or someone you know, has been diagnosed with BPD, he/she should have hope that treatment works and that he/she can overcome this disorder. In the video I will discuss the prevalence of BPD in the U.S. and the world, the variability of traits in BPD, how often it is studied and the likelihood of treatment success, and what individuals diagnosed with BPD need to have and do to overcome this disorder. Please provide your comments below and feel free to send me an email with any questions or comments you have.
