Borderline Personality Disorder is classified under mental disorders that define distinctive behavioural patterns and a set of personality traits and characteristics of an individual marked up by stressful experiences and troubling circumstances. People with mental disorders tend to have different beliefs, values and attitudes from other healthy people. Excessive stress, anxiety and depression trigger unusual behaviour or sometimes, sudden offensive behaviour among sufferers. Childhood and adulthood are the two prone stages to this disorder.
