Personality Disorders   

Personality disorders are a group of mental health conditions in which a person has trouble perceiving and relating to people and situations, including themselves.  With a personality disorder, a person is generally rigid in how they think and act, no matter what the situation might be. This inflexibility can lead to significant problems with relationships, work, school and social situations. Many individuals with a personality disorder are unaware that they have a mental health condition.

According to a 2007 survey, 9.1 percent of the U.S. population meets the American Psychiatric Association’s definition of a personality disorder. Symptoms vary depending on the type of personality disorder but may include:

  • Alcohol or substance abuse
  • Angry outbursts
  • Difficulty making friends
  • Frequent mood swings
  • Poor impulse control
  • Social isolation
  • Stormy relationships
  • Suspicion and mistrust of others
