friend has BDP and its a problem

A friend clearly has BPD and is police officer the only trait that is not noticed is addication to risky sex. How do you convience the friend that she has it or her department that she has this issue. Before she hurts herself or others? SHe is a very angry preson with intense mood swings, isolation and the feeling of "me" never pretty enough, everyone is talking about "me" and mother died at a young age. Her world revolves around dad. Extremely angry at almost anything and then fine the next. Feels left out at work and stays far away from everyone.

Yes well the best thing is to explain it to them in their own terms as that it will be helpful for their recovery and improve their life which can be hard to do. Sometimes its good to have someone else to support you but do explain it in a positive manner.

Like any other psychiatric disability bpd lasts for life. It can effect a person's jobs and relationships. Bpd is treated with medication, talk therapy and dbt therapy (a form of behavioral therapy). I myself have schizoaffective disorder (from which I've had a full recovery with a medication in Phase II FDA study) so you could find out more from people who post here who do have bpd but if the person you speak about does have bpd or any other form of psychiatric disability they would of course need to see a psychiatrist who could decide what to do from there.
