Personality disorder refers to a group of mental health conditions characterized by ingrained patterns of thoughts, behaviours, and emotions that significantly deviate from societal norms. These persistent patterns lead to difficulties in various aspects of life, such as relationships, work, and self-identity. Personality disorders are typically diagnosed after adolescence, and their severity varies. Common types include borderline, narcissistic, antisocial, and obsessive-compulsive personality disorders. Treatment often involves therapy, counselling, and medication to manage symptoms and improve functioning. Early intervention is crucial for better outcomes. Understanding and empathy are vital in supporting those with personality disorders on their path to recovery and stability.
