Personality Disorders Treatment

Personality disorders are a group of mental health conditions—they’re persistent patterns of thoughts, behaviors, actions and emotions that can affect one's life.

These patterns can be inflexible and long-standing, which makes it hard for people to cope with, understand their emotions, and handle various situations.


Living with a personality disorder can make you feel isolated, misunderstood and disapproved by others.

It can feel as though trust in others’ understanding is scarce and a sense of frustration can arise when trying to communicate clearly.

At times, frustration leads to antisocial behaviors, and unhealthy coping.
