Personality Disorder
Significant behavioural changes



This is how you feel when you have a personality disorder.

A person with a personality disorder thinks, feels, behaves, or relates to others very differently from the average person.

Common types of personality disorders:

  • Borderline personality disorder: impulsive behaviour, problems controlling their emotions, unstable but intense relationships, and a fear of abandonment.
  • Antisocial personality disorder: easily frustrated; anger issues; blaming others; aggressiveness with violent behaviour.
  • Dependent personality disorder: being dependent on others for all emotional needs.
  • Other conditions, such as depression and substance misuse, often coexist. They can be treated with a combination of psychological intervention and medications.
