by clicking this link, you can access my drive folder of resources i've compiled pertaining to bpd. but what is borderline personality disorder?
borderline personality disorder is a cluster B (dramatic, emotional or erratic disorders) personality disorder characterized by instability in sense of self and interpersonal directions, and strong emotional reactions. no one knows for sure what causes bpd, but some risk factors include trauma, genetics, parenting, and culture.
