Bipolar Disorder

Find Your Counselor


According to Mayo Clinic, a personality disorder is “a type of mental disorder in which you have a rigid and unhealthy pattern of thinking, functioning and behaving;” they typically surface when a person is in their late teens to early twenties. These unhealthy behavioral patterns impact an individual’s relationships and, at times, their ability to function. They include disorders such as narcissistic personality disorder, borderline personality disorder, bipolar disorder, and more. Each disorder is associated with their own unique symptoms and patterns of behavior.

Living with a personality disorder or having someone in your life who lives with a personality disorder can be unpredictable and stressful, but there are coping mechanisms that can be helpful for both someone living with a personality disorder and for people in those individual’s lives. Working with a professional to understand the underlying foundation of a person with a personality disorder and effective methods of communication and coping can benefit everyone involved.

Signs and Symptoms

  • depression
  • mania
  • difficulty maintaining relationships
  • difficulty maintaining employment
  • mixed state
  • rapid cycling
