There’s a range of recognised personality disorders. The most prevalent are Borderline Personality Disorder and Antisocial Personality Disorder.
Borderline Personality Disorder
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is the most common type of personality disorder and manifests as disturbed thinking, impulsive behaviour, and a distinct difficulty with controlling emotions.
Many people with BPD have abandonment issues and tend to have intense but volatile relationships.
Antisocial Personality Disorder
Antisocial Personality Disorder (APD) affects people who get frustrated easily, accompanied by an inability to control their anger.
People with APD often blame other people for their personal problems and can behave aggressively or violently. Their behaviour is likely to be upsetting for other people.
People with a personality disorder often present a range of other mental health issues, such as substance misuse and depression.
