The National Institute of Mental Health defines a borderline personality disorder as “an illness marked by an ongoing pattern of varying moods, self-image, and behavior.” Individuals who have been diagnosed with a borderline personality disorder may experience severe episodes of anger, sadness, and worry that can last from a few hours to several days.
Typically, BPD coexists with several other mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, and substance abuse.
Diagnosis and Treatment
There is no single test that can immediately determine if a person has a borderline personality disorder. It may take weeks or months before a patient can get a proper diagnosis. Typically, a patient will have to work closely with a mental health professional who can offer them quality Counseling Services in Ohio.
At WCAP Counseling we understand that a person’s mental health is precious. This is why we strive hard to provide top-of-the-line Mental Health Counseling to patients who need the extra support and guidance to overcome their individual challenges.
To make our services and Therapy more accessible to our patients, we now offer TeleHealth Therapy for patients who would prefer to receive care from the comfort of their homes.
