Personality Disorders

Understanding personality disorders

A personality disorder is a type of mental health challenge in which a person has a rigid pattern of thinking, functioning and behaving. A person with a personality disorder has trouble perceiving and relating to situations and people, leading to difficulty forming a stable relationship.

 

There are at least ten types of personality disorders. The onset is usually in late adolescence or early adulthood and causes distress or problems in functioning. Counselling and psychotherapy is the primary treatment for personality disorder, although some people may also need medication.
