Today we are going to debunk some myths about borderline personality disorder (or BPD) because BPD is often misunderstood and stigmatized, which can lead to people being mistreated and hurt. That’s why it’s important that we all understand what BPD is and is NOT. But for the sake of this video I am going to focus on what BPD is NOT and I have 6 myths and misconceptions to get through.
• Borderline Personality Disorder is attention-seeking
• BPD only affects women
• Borderline Personality Disorder is rare
• BPD is just like bipolar disorder
• People with Borderline Personality Disorder can not be in a healthy relationship
• BPD is not treatable
