Symptoms of personality disorders

We all have parts of our personalities which are difficult at times. If you have a personality disorder it doesn’t mean you’re different from other people, you may just need extra help in managing emotions and behaviours.

You may be given a diagnosis of personality disorder if you have all 3 of these symptoms:

  • The way you think, feel or behave causes you and those around you problems in daily life
  • The way you think, feel or behave causes problems across a range of areas of your life. For example, keeping a job may be difficult if you can’t get along with co-workers. You may find it difficult to keep out of trouble
  • These problems have been going on for a long time
