No person with the condition presents the exact same symptoms as someone else and each person develops BPD for different reasons. In the course, you’ll discover how symptoms may present themselves and gain awareness of the various types of Borderline Personality Disorder.
With the symptoms of BPD being common with other disorders, individuals are often misdiagnosed with a different mental health disorder and others can be misdiagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder.
