BPD and Co-Occurring Disorders: What You Need to Know

Many people with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) also have a co-occurring disorder. MedCircle sat down with leading psychologist Dr. Ramani Durvasula to discuss what this means for BPD patients.

She answers:

  • What are the most common co-occurring disorders people with BPD experience?
  • What happens when a BPD patient has a co-occurring disorder?
  • How does treatment work for someone with borderline personality disorder?
  • Which disorder does a mental health professional treat first?
  • What are the implications for a BPD patient who also needs to go to rehab?
  • Does BPD help "cause" other mental health disorders?
  • Can someone with BPD have co-occurring medical issues? If so, what kind of issues?

You can follow Dr. Ramani on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
