Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) FAQs

The most important thing to remember if you are suffering from Borderline Personality Disorder is that it is not your fault. Research from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) suggests the exact causes of BPD remain unknown, though both environmental and biological factors are thought to play a role. No specific gene has been shown to directly cause BPD, but various genes have been identified as playing a role in its development. The brain’s functioning, seen in MRI testing, is often different in people with BPD, suggesting a neurological basis for the disorder.

Self-injurious behavior on its own does not lead to suicide. However, people diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder may engage in a variety of life-threatening behaviors. These include burning and cutting as a way to help express or regulate emotions, or as a form of self-punishment. If you or someone you know if causing self-inflicted harm, please seek help as soon as possible before it turns fatal.

The American Journal of Psychiatry reports that while Borderline Personality Disorder is a serious mental illness, it is by no means a life sentence. Research has shown that the prognosis for BPD has improved over the past decade. With proper treatment, almost half of those diagnosed with BPD will not meet the criteria for diagnosis just two years later. Ten years later, 88 percent of people who were once diagnosed with BPD no longer meet criteria for a diagnosis. With the right kind of BPD treatment, your symptoms can improve, too.
