We can help your daughter with Borderline Personality Disorder, a mental health illness in which she might exhibit unusual levels of depth and variation of moods, persistent instability in interpersonal relationships, self-image and conduct. Borderline Personality Disorder (also sometimes referred to as Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder) might bring about self-loathing, marked change in mood triggered by perceived rejection, seclusion or failure. With BDP, she might be overly sensitive to correction or critique, and her feelings toward others subject to rapid shifts and changes. Feelings of insignificance might lead to risky, impulsive and reckless behavior.
If your daughter suffers from Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder she is likely to see things (or people) in black and white, either perfect or terrible, something (someone) wonderful one day can be appalling the next; very extreme thinking. This can lead her to unceasing instability in relationships, dangerously careless actions (with food, alcohol or drug consumption, driving or sex), and frequent displays of aggression or frustration, self-mutilating or suicidal behavior.
As with many other personality disorders, while the causes for BPD are not known, a combination of environmental, genetic factors and brain chemistry are thought to be causal contributors. Higher risk might also come from a close family member who has the disorder, or from childhood abuse or neglect.
Clearview Horizon is an Ideal Setting to Help Your Daughter with Borderline Personality Disorder
Treatment is primarily therapy-based but can be complicated, because there must be a great deal of trust between your daughter and her therapist, something often difficult to achieve because of her swift and extreme mood swings. Characteristic treatments might include interpersonal therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and psychodynamic therapy.
Certain medications are sometimes successful, although they are not a normal part of the protocol.
Left untreated, your daughter can face serious complications related to isolation and relationship problems, financial or legal problems, many of those related to substance abuse. But, we know that the last thing you want is for Borderline Personality Disorder to continue to control her life!
