Personality Disorder

Personality disorders are a group of mental health conditions that affect how a person thinks, feels, behaves and relates to others. People with personality disorders have patterns of thinking and acting that differ significantly from the expectations of their culture and cause distress or impairment in their functioning. Personality disorders usually begin in adolescence or early adulthood and persist throughout life. There are different types of personality disorders, each with its own characteristics and challenges. Some common examples are borderline personality disorder, antisocial personality disorder, narcissistic personality disorder and avoidant personality disorder. Personality disorders can be treated with psychotherapy, medication or a combination of both, depending on the severity and type of the disorder and the person’s goals and preferences
