When to Seek Medical Care for Borderline Personality Disorder
As with any other mental health issues, the time to seek medical care for BPD is when the symptoms meaningfully interfere with the sufferer's life. Individuals with BPD often enter care when they experience negative changes in their lives, like divorce or another relationship loss or job loss. Other symptoms that indicate the need for treatment include, but are not limited to, eating disorders, sleep problems, significant depression, anger, anxiety or mood swings, self-injurious behaviors like cutting, and thoughts of dying or killing oneself.
