A Suffering Population

Characteristics associated with borderline personality disorder (BPD) include emotional dysregulation, impulsivity, interpersonal problems, self-harm, and suicidal behaviors.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a compassionate and evidence-based model that has proven to be effective for consumers.
