Types of borderline personality disorder

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is also known as emotionally unstable personality disorder (EUPD).

If your doctor says you have EUPD, they may say you have ‘borderline’ or ‘impulsive’ type EUPD.


If you have borderline-type EUPD you may have more difficulties with relationships, self-harming and feelings of emptiness.


If you have impulsive-type EUPD you may have more difficulties with impulsive behaviour and feelings of anger.
