Borderline Personality Disorder Health Center

Borderline personality disorder usually begins during adolescence or early adulthood. Some studies suggest that early symptoms of the illness may occur during childhood.

Some people with borderline personality disorder experience severe symptoms and require intensive, often inpatient, care. Others may use some outpatient treatments but never need hospitalization or emergency care. Some people who develop this disorder may improve without any treatment.
