Borderline Personality Disorder
Borderline personality disorder is a serious mental illness marked by unstable
moods, behavior, and relationships. In 1980, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual
for Mental Disorders, Third Edition (DSM-III) listed borderline personality disorder
as a diagnosable illness for the first time. Most psychiatrists and other mental
health professionals use the DSM to diagnose mental illnesses.
Because some people with severe borderline personality
disorder have brief psychotic episodes, experts originally
thought of this illness as atypical, or borderline, versions of
other mental disorders.1 While mental health experts now
generally agree that the name “borderline personality disorder”
is misleading, a more accurate term does not exist yet.
