Borderline Personality Disorder: Treatment and Management

Borderline Personality Disorder: Treatment and Management

NICE Clinical Guidelines - National Collaborating Centre for Mental Health (UK)

Version: 2009

MANAGEMENT OF CRISES

People with borderline personality disorder can often present in a crisis; indeed this is characteristic of many people with the disorder. They present with a range of symptoms and behaviours, including behavioural disturbance, self-harm, impulsive aggression, and short-lived psychotic symptoms, as well as with intense anxiety, depression and anger. As a result they can be regular users of psychiatric and acute hospital emergency services.

SUMMARY OF RECOMMENDATIONS

People with borderline personality disorder should not be excluded from any health or social care service because of their diagnosis or because they have self-harmed.
