A Personality Disorder

What is a personality disorder, what are some of the key signs, and what kinds of care and treatments are available. It is a type of mental health condition in which a person has an unhealthy and enduring pattern of thinking, functioning and behaving.

There are a range of symptoms, some of the most common are being overwhelmed by negative feelings, avoiding others, finding it hard to manage emotions, engaging in self-harm, having difficulty maintaining relationships and losing contact with reality.
