What is …. A Personality Disorder.

I was going to try to type out all the information I had about personality disorders, then I remembered that I have a wonderful factsheet prepared by Rethink Mental Illness. So I decided to share that with you all and offer only a very brief description of a personality disorder so that you can focus on the wonderful work they have already done.


What is a personality disorder? This is when a person thinks, behaves, acts, feels or responds/relates to other people differently to the majority of the population. Each type of personality disorder is different and they symptoms differ due to each disorder as the factsheet explains in detail. Some people with personality disorders can struggle with depression and anxiety, as well as other mental health difficulties.

Mind have also got a really helpful page on Personality Disorders.
